Community College Program Development and Evaluation Model for Student Services.
Each semester in the 136 state-supported community colleges in California, counselors are involved in developing, maintaining, and/or revising hundreds of programs that may or may not result in helping students move efficiently through the system. Developed as a resource for administrators and counselors charged with improving community college counseling programs, this guide provides two program development models. Following a brief introduction and an overview of the concepts involved, materials related to the Goals/Objectives-Based Model are presented, including a narrative description and outline of the model; a program development wheel; sample guidance program outcomes; sample goals and objectives, selected student outcomes, and baseline outcomes for the outreach-assessment-admissions domain, and the educational-career domain; sample goals and objectives, and selected student outcomes for the personal-social domain; and sample goals for the consultive management domain. Next, materials related to the objective-free program development model are presented, including a narrative description and outline of the model; a program development wheel; a sample goals and evaluation format; a sample counseling delivery system; and a sample program-based needs assessment survey of educational/career and student-centered needs. The guide concludes with a summation of the results expected from the models' implementation; a glossary of terms; and outreach and early decision program development worksheets. (MAB)
