Matriculation Local Research Options Project.
Northern California Community Colleges Research Group.; Southern California Community Coll. Institutional Research Association, Los Angeles.; California Association of Community Colleges, Sacramento.
Designed to promote institutional research to evaluate matriculation in California community colleges, this document outlines the methodology, anticipated results, and discussion points for nine model research projects. The research projects are designed to assess the effects of matriculation on student performance; on access to education, fairness, and placement programs; and on student satisfaction and goal changes. The nine projects focus on: (1) comparing the academic performance of students who are fully, partially, or not served by matriculation services using a retrospective approach; (2) evaluating student academic success before and after implementing matriculation services; (3) comparing alternative matriculation treatments; (4) assessing the disproportionate impact of assessment and placement programs on student access; (5) evaluating the effectiveness of remedial placement; (6) comparing student success in a history course on the basis of English fluency; (7) determining changes in educational access associated with the implementation of matriculation; (8) monitoring changes in student goals before and after participation in matriculation services; and (9) obtaining feedback from students regarding their use of and satisfaction with matriculation services. For each project, information is provided on purposes, research design, subjects, operational definitions of groups, procedures, results, data analysis, points to cover in study reports, research options, and a contact person for technical assistance. Appendixes contain a glossary and guidelines on sampling. (JMC)
