Instructional Computing in Minority Institutions: A Needs/Strategy Assessment. Executive Summary of Final Report.
This survey of 239 colleges and universities identified as minority institutions was designed to determine both the current status and the desired status of instructional computing in each school. Needs of the minority institutions were assessed by means of a questionnaire survey, in-depth campus interviews, and an analysis of data from FICHE (Fourth Inventory on Computers in Higher Education). Objectives emerging from these data served as a basis for strategies to meet the needs as perceived from an external viewpoint. The first of two volumes, this report describes the procedures used and provides a summary of the survey findings. Discussions of both the current status and the desired status of instructional computing in the responding institutions are followed by a summary of priorities and alternative strategies identified by the study. This volume also includes the first two of seven separate reports which comprise the remainder of the report: Computer Education Goals at Minority Institutions of Higher Education by Arthur Luehrmann, and Strategies for Improvement of Educational Computing at Minority Institutions by Judith B. Edwards. (BK)
