An Evaluation Guide for College Women's Re-entry Programs.
Mezirow, Jack; Rose, Amy D.
Since 1970, over 300 community colleges have established re-entry programs designed especially for women who are either continuing their education or entering the job market after an extended hiatus. Re-entry programs vary in scope and in the nature of services provided, with some offering specific skills on vocational training, and others providing classes and other services to a degree. This publication provides a strategy for evaluating systematically how effectively these programs operate. Steps in evaluating are outlined and questionnaires that may be used selectively to study particular functions relevant to particular programs are provided. The following questionnaires are included: (1) adminstrative staff questionnaire; (2) advisory board questionnaire; (3) alumnae questionnaire; (4) college officers' questionnaire; (5) community agency questionnaire; (6) program director questionnaire; (7) student questionnaires; and (8) teacher questionnaire. Guidelines for analyzing the data collected are provided including sample charts for tabulating responses. The appendices contain a glossary and a program data inventory form. (SPG)
