Pueblo Community College. Accountability Progress Report, Academic Year 1990-1991.
College outcomes assessment data and data collection plans for the future are presented in this report on Pueblo Community College's (PCC's) progress in implementing its 1991 Revised Accountability Plan. Following introductory sections, information is presented on changes made as the result of assessment efforts, activities to disseminate assessment results, methods used to inform students of outcomes expectations, costs, minority students' withdrawal rates and achievement, and concerns of the Colorado Council of Higher Education about PCC's 1990 progress report. The next section of the report presents charts covering goals assessed, method of assessment, validation process, student outcomes, and program changes for general education areas and 24 disciplines. In addition, retention and course, program, and degree completion data, information on alumni and student satisfaction, and after-graduation performance are presented. The next sections focus on changes in reporting plans and methods that differ from the accountability plan; evidence of faculty involvement and institutional commitment; developmental studies and General Equivalency Degree preparation; outreach, business, and community services; and student support services. In many areas, future assessment plans are noted. Appendixes provide background data on reasons for PCC school and course withdrawals in 1990, degrees and certificates awarded, headcount, ethnic breakdowns of native and transfer students, a comparison of degree goals with degree attainment, post-remediation performance, basic skills by ethnicity, and pass rates for certification exams.
