The Graduates 1976.
Gell, Robert L.; Armstrong, David F.
A followup survey to determine the present circumstances of 1976 graduates and their attitudes toward their educational experiences resulted in the following findings: (1) almost equal numbers were employed as were in school; (2) of those in school, the majority were enrolled at the University of Maryland; (3) of those employed, most were earning more than $8,000 per year; (4) there was high satisfaction with jobs, programs of study, the level of instruction, and the counseling services at Montgomery; (5) a majority would recommend the college and its programs to friends; and (6) most achieved their initial goals at the community college. Problem areas identified included the loss of transfer credits to Maryland public colleges and universities, the lack of college job placement services, and the apparent lack of support from high school personnel. It was recommended that the college conduct case studies of those who lost credits at transfer, that it investigate the need for job placement resources, and that it increase its articulation with feeder high schools. Summative data is divided by field of study with regard to employment and salary information, and the questionnaire is appended. (RT)
