Evaluation Report on the Austin Peay State University Project: Title III, Strengthening Developing Institution Program.
Petry, John R.; And Others
Results of an external evaluation of the Strengthening Developing Institutions Program (SDIP) at Austin Peay State University are presented. This federally-funded Title III SDIP program entailed five activities during 1980-1983: developmental studies program, administrative/operational support systems, career business and professional programs, multi-service career development, and SDIP coordination. Objectives and activities that were undertaken for each of these five program areas are identified. The following benefits of the SDIP program are also identified: it demonstrated the need for remedial training; the program helped the university develop and implement a computer system; the SDIP promoted the revision of curricular offerings, including the development of a computer science degree; the program helped improve the effectiveness of the Testing Center and the University Placement Services; and the program influenced the university to allocate permanent funding for the four program areas to be maintained after the conclusion of the SDIP grant. Appendices provide activity evaluation reports and monitoring reports for each of the original five program areas, along with evaluation data, a job placement manual, and a 1983 directory of teacher education graduates.
