Community College/CETA Linkages: A Follow-Up Study. Final Report.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
Building upon data derived from a 1978 study, a project was conducted from March through June 1980 to assess and subsequently strengthen the relationship between Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) sponsors and six Illinois community colleges. Meetings of community college decision-makers and CETA personnel were held to: (1) review the findings of the 1978 study, which identified for these same six institutions those factors positively or negatively impacting the CETA/college relationship; (2) update the status of the relationships; and (3) identify, through forced field analyses, those activities that could be initiated to improve the CETA/college relationship. The project confirmed a major finding of the 1978 study--that there were three main determinants of a successful relationship: compatability of CETA and college organizational objectives, adequate exchange of information between the two parties, and recognition by each of the benefits to be derived from cooperation. The study report details findings for each institution in a series of six site visit reports, which summarize those factors influencing the CETA/college relationship since 1978, assess the current relationship, outline goals for improvement established by meeting participants, and evaluate meeting outcomes. Summary recommendations are appended. (JP)
