Report of the Student Evaluation of the Milwaukee Area Technical College.
Redovich, Dennis W.
As part of its continuous planning and evaluation process, Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) surveyed a sample of day and evening students (N=8,018) from throughout the district regarding the functions, services, and facilities of the school. The survey solicited information on students' characteristics, reasons for attending MATC, prior education, current employment, income, and transportation to MATC, and requested students to evaluate a wide range of services and facilities, such as instruction, equipment, facilities for the handicapped, opportunities for non-traditional study, the library, registration, counseling, financial aid, the bookstore, job placement, student involvement in governance, and student activities. Items receiving the highest evaluations districtwide were instructors' attitudes, course relevance, quality of instruction, availability of faculty, quality of facilities, treatment by non-teaching staff, quality of instructional equipment, and services and facilities for the handicapped. Lowest ratings districtwide were given to availability of parking, recreation facilities, job placement, athletic activities, student lounge facilities, and extracurricular activities. The study report describes methodology, profiles student subgroups (i.e., categorized by day/evening attendance, campus attended, ethnic background, and handicapped status) and details their responses, and compares findings to those of a 1981 survey. The questionnaire is appended. (KL)
