Miami-Dade Community College 1984 Institutional Self-Study. Volume I: Summary and Recommendations.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
Designed to provide a systematic, in-depth assessment of Miami-Dade Community College's (MDCC's) educational programs, this institutional self-study report assesses the impact and effectiveness of major reforms in the college's educational programs, student support services, and selected campus-level activities. The first of eight volumes begins with an introduction to the self-study, including an overview of the college environment; descriptions of the college, its growth, and the MDCC reforms; and identifies the reforms evaluated in the 1984 study. Chapter II describes how the study was conducted, including information on its scope and focus, data collection and analysis methods, and final reporting. Chapter III presents recommendations and projections developed during the self-study in the following major areas: prescriptive education, academic policies and curriculum reform, student information and performance standards, and studies of specific programs and areas for MDCC's four campuses (i.e., North Campus, South Campus, Wolfson Campus, and Medical Center Campus). The final chapters present a summary, references, and a list of self-study participants. (HB)
