Directory of Southern California Community College Researchers.
Wilcox, Stuart A.
Designed as an aid to researchers in locating other individuals who may be able and willing to share their experience and expertise, this directory presents information on Southern California community college institutional researchers. The information presented in the directory was provided by the 44 respondents to a questionnaire sent to all district superintendents and community college presidents in Southern California. Part I of the directory lists the addresses of the responding researchers by district/college, the percentage of the researchers' time allocated to research, and the type of research position (i.e., certified or classified). Parts II and III identify researchers who would be able and willing to provide advice to others and the areas of research (e.g., matriculation, recruitment, student outcomes, and needs assessment) and the research skills (e.g., hardware and software skills, designing databases, and developing questionnaires) in which they considered themselves experienced. Finally, part IV outlines the duties and responsibilities reported by each researcher and the percent of time spent on each. The tasks most frequently included in the respondents' duties and responsibilities were collection/dissemination of information, identifying trends in student characteristics and enrollments, responding to ad hoc requests, data analysis for decision makers, and evaluating programs and services.
