Institutional Research, Fiscal Year 1979: Evaluations. Research Monographs II, IV, VII, X, and XIV.
South Oklahoma City Junior Coll., OK.
Of the 14 institutional research projects undertaken at South Oklahoma City Junior College during fiscal year 1979, four are summarized in this compilation which also contains a bibliography on non-traditional education in the two-year college setting. The first report presents, in three tables, a count of classes by time of day for the 1977, 1978, and 1979 Fall entry points. While the tables show similar room usage patterns, there was a slight decrease from 1978 to 1979. The second report outlines the results of a survey conducted in Fall 1978 to determine student attitudes towards the college's new Saturday class offerings. Selected findings indicate that students became aware of the new classes through signs on the campus, word of mouth, and the campus class schedule. Most students (71.3%) were enrolled in only one class, and 95% felt that class times were meeting their needs. The third report discusses the results of a survey of 21 instructors conducted in March, 1979, to determine their reactions to the newly designed "quad-pod" classrooms. The majority (61%) rated the "quad-pods" poor or very poor, complaining of too much noise and inadequate lighting. The final report outlines the results of a participant evaluation of a workshop that was held in April, 1979, to determine 1980 institutional goals. (JP)
