Report of the Project on Contracting, Review, and Assessment Procedures.
Vermont Community Colleges, Montpelier.
The broad purpose of this project was to examine all aspects of the Community College of Vermont (CCV) review and contracting process and to recommend changes to the CCV Review Board and Decision Team for implementation. Examination focused on the present program, the contract format, Local Review Committee procedures, the counseling process, and graduate criteria. Specific questions were generated and answers sought by personal interviews with all CCV staff members and Review Board members, questionnaires sent to all graduates, a sample of teachers, a sample of current students, all Local Review Committee members, and the personal experience of the author. A model was constructed for a CCV Degree Development Sequence including (1) initial screening; (2) planning--career exploration, values clarification, goal setting, assessment of current competencies, development of a plan; and (3) implementation and evaluation--assessing all learning, validating competence, completing the package. This report contains the results of the assessment, descriptions of important aspects of the current systems, and a set of action proposals for approval by the Decision Team. (VT)
