MacDougall, Peter, Ed.; Friedlander, Jack, Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n72 Win 1990
Recent mandates from state and accrediting agencies are requiring community colleges to provide evidence of their success in such areas as basic skills and remediation, general education, major-field content, student development, transfer effectiveness, job training, job placement, and fiscal accountability. This volume, in addition to describing some contemporary mandates for institutional effectiveness, presents a range of institutional research models that can be used to seek answers to the complex questions being posed. The volume includes the following nine articles: (1) "The Traditional Centralized Model of Institutional Research," by Julie Slark; (2) "The Centralized Research Model in a Multicampus District," by John Losak; (3) "The Coordinated Research Model in a Multicampus District," by Janis Cox Jones; (4) "The Decentralized Research Model," by Peter MacDougall, Jack Friedlander, Elaine Cohen, and John Romo; (5) "The Centralized-Decentralized Research Model," by Marylin Orton; (6) "Research by Voluntary Consortium," by Don Doucette and Jeffrey A. Seybert; (7) "t-Test for Two: A State-Local Research Partnership," by Daniel D. McConochie and James D. Tschechtelin; (8) "The State Agency-College-Mandated Approach," by Madan Capoor and Edward Morante; and (9) "Responding to Mandates for Institutional Effectiveness," by Jack Friedlander and Peter R. MacDougall. (PAA)
