Institutional Assessment Manual for the Review of Instructional Programs, Administrative Operations and Instructional Support Services.
Florida Community Coll., Jacksonville.
The institutional assessment model described in this report is used by Florida Community College at Jacksonville (FCCJ) to collect current information needed to update the goals of service and instructional units, identify opportunities for improvement and growth, and assess the resources of the college. The first sections of the paper explain the role of institutional assessment in a cycle of planning, research, and marketing and establish its scope, purposes, and uses. The next section presents an overview of the three phases of FCCJ's assessment process: (1) an annual review of planning and marketing objectives, and of institutional and instructional program indicators; (2) scheduled in-depth reviews of all units by unit assessment committees, who prepare reports on strengths and weaknesses; and (3) reviews of such collegewide issues and concerns as funding, institutional and state policies, proposed legislation, and articulation agreements. The next sections discuss the assessment procedures and evaluation criteria specific to instructional support services and instructional units. Lists of FCCJ's assessment units and operational definitions of indicators conclude the paper. (WJT)
