Report of the Institutional Evaluation Task Force.
Vancouver Community Coll., British Columbia.
The results are presented of an institutional evaluation conducted by Vancouver Community College (VCC) in 1978-79 which involved a survey of 14 groups within the college community and an investigation of the survey findings by a visiting team of administrators and instructors from other institutions. The report first describes the advantages of the College and Program Review Instrument used in the survey and then identifies the respondent groups: (1) VCC administrators, (2) members of the college council, (3) faculty, (4) continuing education instructors, (5) non-teaching staff, (6) advisory committee members, (7) students, (8) apprenticeship students, (9) continuing education students, (10) graduates, (11) students withdrawing before program completion, (12) employers, (13) area citizens, and (14) guidance department heads from area high schools. A summative interpretation of the survey findings is then presented in terms of respondent attitudes toward the college's goals, faculty and staff, physical resources, administrative processes, community relations, and students. The report then identifies, using a series of tables, items which the respondent groups commonly identified as particular VCC strengths and weaknesses and items on which the respondents did not agree. The report concludes with the visiting team's analysis of the study and its findings. (JP)
