Matriculation Evaluation: Monographs on Designs from the Local Research Options Project.
In November 1989, nine research designs developed to assist local colleges in the evaluation of their matriculation activities were disseminated to the California community colleges. These designs, created as part of the Local Research Options Project, focused on measuring the effects of the colleges' matriculation activities on student performance, goal changes, and satisfaction, and on access and fairness. Reports and/or data resulting from the research designs were solicited from the colleges in summer 1991. This collection contains the following summaries of materials compiled for each design: (1) "Comparing the Academic Performance of Students Who Are Fully, Partially, or Not Served by Matriculation Services: A Retrospective Approach," by Richard Rasor; (2) "An Evaluation of Student Academic Success Before and After Implementing Matriculation," by Richard Rasor; (3) "An Experimental Comparison of Alternative Matriculation Treatments," by William Threlfall; (4) "Disproportionate Impact and Reading, Writing, and Math Assessments," by Jon Kangas; (5) "Evaluating the Effectiveness of Remedial Placement," by Marty Dunlap; (6) "History Course Success Based on English Eligibility," by Scot Spicer; (7) "Student Access and the Implementation of Matriculation," by Richard Rasor; (8) "Monitoring Changes in Student Goals Before and After Matriculation," by Jon Kangas; and (9) "Student Satisfaction With Matriculation," by Scot Spicer. Appendixes include a seven-page summary of a telephone survey on matriculation research and the survey instrument. (JSP)
