Evaluation of ACPA '81.
Kuh, George D.; Farrell, Patrick J.
In 1981, the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) evaluated its national meeting in Cincinnati using four data-gathering strategies: (1) photography; (2) interviews; (3) a survey; and (4) immediate personalized feedback to conference presenters. This report emphasizes the findings from the interview and survey components of the comprehensive evaluation strategy. The purpose of the evaluation was to provide information to the ACPA leadership concerning the extent to which the annual meeting met the needs of student affairs professionals attending the conference. More specifically, the evaluation was guided questions involving who attends ACPA conventions, why student affairs professionals attend the meeting, and how satisfied were convention-goers with ACPA 1981. Three areas were identified as most important for attending the convention. These include placement opportunities, presentations or programs, and personal or professional development. (Author/GK)
