Dawson Community College Needs Assessment Survey Analysis.
Ensrud, Peter R.; Edgar, Patrick B.
In 1983, a study was conducted by Dawson Community College (DCC) to gather information for program development at off-campus sites in Sidney and Baker, Montana, and to evaluate the services provided by the main campus to the communities in the Dawson area. The study, conducted in all three geographic areas, involved surveys of: (1) high school juniors, which focused on familiarity with DCC's regular and early admission programs, interest in college courses, and primary barriers to DCC enrollment; (2) high school seniors, which solicited information on employment and educational plans and course interest; (3) community residents, which gathered information through mailed questionnaires and, in the case of the Dawson area, telephone interviews focusing on personal background, perceptions of DCC, preferred conditions for learning, enrollment barriers, and program interests; and (4) business and industry, which solicited general information on the firms, training needs of new and current employees, and interest in DCC's services. The study report includes separate analyses for each community for each survey. (LAL)
