The EICCD Program Evaluation Process: A Primary Data Source for Strategic Planning and Decision Making. AIR 1989 Annual Forum Paper.
Friedel, Janice Nahra
The primary purpose of the Eastern Iowa Community College District (EICCD) Program Evaluation Process is to ensure curricular relevance, instructional quality and the effective and efficient use of resources. Developed and pilot-tested on 38 vocational-technical programs, the model is being utilized by more than 120 technical and community colleges in the United States and Canada. The process consists of two phases, an annual review of the program in terms of 10 data elements and an in-depth program review conducted once every 3-5 years. The 10 data elements are unduplicated enrollment/headcount; contact hours generated by the program; full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment generated by the program; program graduation/completion rates; program leavers and withdrawal rates; program majors' intent for enrolling in the program; program costs; average class size; success of program leavers and graduates; and meeting highlights. Phase II consists of faculty self-study; an internal review team visit and report, surveys conducted of 6 target groups, and decision-making. Contains 38 references. (Author/KM)
