Proposed Transfer Project between the District and the Four-Year Segments.
Baratta, Frank; Moody, Lee
This project proposal provides background information and outlines a Contra Costa Community College District (CCCCD) effort to develop: (1) a framework for studying the transfer process and for assessing the success of district colleges in preparing students to transfer; (2) a mechanism for identifying and counseling potential transfer students, determining their transfer rates, and monitoring their progress through the completion of their undergraduate programs; and (3) the district's capacity to generate transfer reports to meet planning, accountability, and accreditation requirements. After discussing project purposes, the proposal reviews efforts to monitor the transfer function at the state level in California and other states; and the legislative and policy context of the transfer project. A discussion of the scope and methodology of the project is followed by descriptions of component activities, including a proposed information exchange between the district and local four-year colleges; intersegmental and district administrative support; pilot studies with the University of California and California State Universities; and development of a transfer framework, including operational definitions of such key terms as potential transfer population, vocational education population, leavers, transfer eligibles, transfer admits, transfers, basic skills population, basic skills potential transfer population, and pre-college population. The final section discusses broad policy questions. (JMC)
