Design and Implementation of a Multi-Strategy, Collegewide Program of Evaluation and Planning: The Mercy College Self-Study Project.
Kraetzer, Mary C.; And Others
The rationale, strategies, and methods of The Mercy College Self-Study Project are considered, and evaluation instruments are provided. This program of institutional evaluation and planning was initiated in 1980 and consists of: standardized surveys, a 10-year longitudinal (panel) study, and academic department self-studies. Questionnaires designed by the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) and the College Board are for the most part administered annually to determine student/alumni characteristics, goals, and accomplishments. Also administered are the Educational Testing Service's Institutional Functioning Inventory and the Institutional Goals Inventory. NCHEMS questionnaires for the entering student and recent alumni are included, along with the first interview schedule for the 10-year longitudinal Study. Departmental strategic planning guidelines are presented as well as information on self-studies conducted by four departments: nursing; history and political science; English and humanities; and criminal justice. Additional materials include: departmental cover letters and self-evaluation questions, a student course evaluation questionnaire, and a teaching observation report. Planning materials by Sidney S. Micek are also included: "Departmental Strategic Planning Guidelines" and "Taking Charge of Change in Academic Departments through the Use of Strategic Planning." (SW)
