Women in Technical Education. Annual Report 1990-91.
Texas State Technical Coll., Waco.
First-year activities of Women in Technical Education, a project to develop a model for women in that field, were evaluated. A formative evaluation showed that intense development and implementation activity enabled achievement of first-year goals and objectives during the 1990-91 year. Procedures to accomplish objectives were effective. Recruitment of female students significantly increased, and retention of all women in technical education was up slightly. Although money was unavailable to contract with private consultants, the project leveraged community service and state resources successfully to expand program capability. Program impact was felt in the following areas: female student interaction with the Women's Resource Center; on-campus networking between faculty and project staff; department participation with the center; and volunteer participation. Indicators of institutional effectiveness and performance measures to evaluate effectiveness were being established. (Following the brief report is a longer appendix that details progress of objective achievement. A summary chart indicates first-year objectives, due date, and activities accomplished. More specific details of the activities are then provided in outline form.) (YLB)
