Learning Skills Centre--Department Evaluation.
This report on an internal evaluation, which was conducted for developmental purposes, describes services provided at the Learning Skills Centres (LSC) on three separate campuses of Grant MacEwan Community College, in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). The key questions of the evaluation addressed student and staff awareness of the existence of the LSC; client satisfaction with the services offered; and the identification of present and future needs. A list of suggested strategies for improving LSC services based on the findings of the evaluation, a summary of the findings, and background information introduce the main body of the report. The collection of data via surveys of selected students, instructors, counselors, librarians, and staff is then described and a table displays the overall responses to each of the surveys. Findings are reported for the level of awareness of the LSCs and their services for each of the populations surveyed together with the respondents' assessment of current services and suggestions for their improvement. Data on the types of services required as reported by students, instructors, and counselors are analyzed and a table details the results of the needs assessment for each group in the areas of assistance in improving writing, reading, math, and learning skills; English as a Second Language; specific subject areas; and workshops. Discussions of major issues, concerns, and suggested changes conclude the report. Twelve tables present the findings of the various surveys, and the appendixes contain copies of the questionnaire for the student awareness survey; the student, faculty, counselor, and campus librarian questionnaires; and a staff interview form.
