Haase, Murray; Roberts, Lynn
Using data tables to verify statements and highlight needed changes, this report provides accountability for the activities of Sacramento City College's (SCC's) Assessment Center from November 1, 1981 through March 31, 1982. After noting a 9.4% increase in Assessment Center use during the period, the report provides data on the reading levels of SCC students and shows that through assessment procedures students were being properly placed in English and reading classes. The next sections, summarizing research conducted at SCC, focus on: (1) an English curriculum evaluation project; (2) the effects of English as a Second Language courses on student competency levels; (3) non-English department research on reading level as a predictor of course success; (4) percentages of students assessed in various college divisions; and (5) a special study of reading scores and final grades in speech classes. The report then establishes priorities for the expansion of Assessment Center services. The bulk of the report and supplement consist of data tables and a detailed breakdown of assessment activities and results for specific classes. (HB)
