Designed for community colleges that wish to improve their accreditation self-studies, strategic planning, and program reviews by gathering information about students and their learning outcomes, this working paper presents a bank of questionnaire items focusing on student and college outcomes. The item bank is organized into five major categories: (1) academic, covering the satisfaction with/helpfulness of particular activities, academic goals, and objective outcomes; (2) personal, including attitudes and beliefs, goals, self-assessment, decisions, personal development, and learner outcomes; (3) career/employment; (4) the college environment, focusing on student evaluation, student choices and college outcomes; and (5) demographics, including personal and educational descriptors. The item bank includes 536 survey items and 53 specific sources of student and college information that may be available at the local institution or elsewhere. (HB)
