Tripp, Laurie
Drawing from both state and institutional data sources, this report provides personnel at Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) with an in-depth analysis of assessment issues, offering both quantitative and qualitative information on assessment and student outcomes. Section 1 provides data on student transfer goal achievement, indicating that one-third of AACC's 1987 first-time, full-time freshmen had transferred to a Maryland public institution by fall 1991, and that over 80% of transfer students rated their preparation as very good or good. Section 2 focuses on student preparation for employment and goal achievement, revealing that 96% of 1990 career program graduates and 86% of transfer and career program graduates combined were employed, and that 82% of the employed career program graduates were working in jobs related to their community college majors. Section 3 discusses extended learning, and indicates that student enrollment in continuing education courses was down 22% in fiscal year 1992. Section 4 considers student educational support services, indicating that in fall 1992, 30% of first-time freshmen needed remediation in English, 32% in reading, and 55% in math. Section 5, which discusses retention and graduation, shows that the overall success rate for first-time, full-time students is 52%, while the 1991-92 fall-to-spring retention rate for first-time freshmen was 59%. Recruitment is discussed in section 6, which shows that 39% of the county residents enrolled as full-time undergraduates in fall 1991 were enrolled at Anne Arundel. Finally, section 7 reviews general education outcomes, indicating that 1990 graduates felt that the college had contributed most to their enjoyment of learning, self-confidence, and clarification of their educational and career goals.
