The Commission to Study the Future of Community Colleges in Kentucky was established in 1988 to review the accomplishments of the Kentucky Community College System (KCCS), to assess its current status, and to provide direction for the KCCS towards the year 2000. Developed as part of a collection of articles and reports on the KCCS for use by the Commission in its work, this report details the KCCS planning and budgeting processes, program evaluation procedures, and institutional accreditation policies and activities. Specifically, the report presents information on the following: (1) the five-year plan, the biennial budget/plan, and the annual budget/plan; (2) the assessment of transfer programs and technical programs, assessment techniques common to both transfer and technical programs, including the use of exit questionnaires, graduate follow-up surveys, and employer questionnaires, and assessment of continuing education/community service activities; (3) annual performance reviews, the annual review/report, and the Fifth Year Educational Unit Review; (4) assessment of externally funded programs; (5) evaluation by external accreditation agencies, and regional accreditation for colleges and universities; (6) the use of evaluation results; and (7) summaries of reviews conducted by external review agencies. A list of discussion questions for the Commission; data tables; a list of accrediting agencies utilized; copies of the assessment survey instruments; a 1975-1989 merit-pay report conducted for Jefferson Community College; and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools criteria for accreditation, are included.
