Effective Relationships for School/College Partnerships, 1984-87, and Achieving Academic Excellence through School/College Partnerships, 1987-90. Qualitative Evaluations of the Curriculum Enhancement Projects Participating in the California Academic Partnership Program.
Galligani, Dennis J.
This document contains two studies of California curriculum enhancement projects designed to develop academic partnerships between secondary and postsecondary institutions and improve the academic preparation of students. The first study provides a qualitative evaluation of 20 projects funded by the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) during the first funding cycle (1984-1987). It examines characteristics which contribute to effective partnerships, successful methods for achieving curriculum enhancement goals, methods for reaching specific CAPP project goals, and unintended outcomes. It also outlines recommendations for effective partnership relationships. The second study emphasizes CAPP's role in motivating students underrepresented in postsecondary education due to historical, economic, or geographic factors, and describes a set of 10 curriculum enhancement projects. This study's findings focus on effective administrative structures, promoting faculty-to-faculty interactions, enhancing school curriculum, communicating effectively, involving parents, sharing costs, and ensuring institutionalization. It also concludes with recommendations for effective partnership development. Appendices include California Assembly Bill 2398, lists of CAPP curriculum enhancement projects, and materials used in program evaluation. Contains 14 references. (GLR)
