Suggestions and Guidelines for Illinois Public Community College System Fiscal Year 1986 Program Review and Evaluation.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
As the Illinois public community college system approaches its 20th anniversary and in the face of a changing economy and shifting public priorities, the establishment of a systematic, collegewide program review and evaluation process that can improve the colleges' overall effectiveness and efficiency in relation to student, community, and state needs has become a necessity. Realizing that the primary usefulness of program review is at the individual college level and that no two colleges are alike, the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) adopted a revised rule on Program Evaluation and Review, setting minimum standards of complieance and the following requirements: (1) the process established by each college must be systematic and collegewide; (2) all instructional, student, and academic support service programs must be reviewed; (3) the program evaluations must focus on the need for the program, the quality of the program, and the cost of the program; (4) every program must be reviewed at least every 5 years; and (5) each year the college must submit a list of programs to be reviewed and a summary report to the ICCB. At the state level, both the ICCB and the Illinois Board of Higher Education will be involved in the program review and evaluation processes. The ICCB will examine each college's program review schedule, report of review results, and review process. In the context of brief discussions, the report includes lists of indicators for assessing program need, costs, and quality, along with a sample program review and evaluation report format. (EJV)
