The EICCD Program Evaluation Process for Vocational-Technical Programs: A Summary.
Friedel, Janice Nahra; Coker, Dana Rosenberg
This document describes and provides forms used in the Eastern Iowa Community College District (EICCD) Vocational-Technical Program Evaluation Process. Chapter I describes development of the process and discusses the goals of program evaluation. Two major components of the program evaluation process--annual program review and 3-year in-depth program evaluation--are identified. Seven components of the in-depth program evaluation process are outlined: program descriptive information; surveys; labor market assessment; faculty self-study; internal review team report; faculty response to report; and decision making by instructional council. Chapters II through VIII focus on these seven components. Each chapter discusses one of the components in detail. Chapter II provides formats to deliver the required program descriptive information. Chapter III contains copies of surveys used with six groups and data matrix formats to present survey results. Types of information collected by the labor market assessment are outlined in Chapter IV. Chapter V presents questions that provide an outline for the faculty self-study. Chapter VI describes the purpose, members, and role of the internal review team and lists its duties. An internal review team report form is provided. Chapters VII and VIII briefly discuss the faculty response to the report and decision making by the instructional council, respectively. (YLB)
