CFCC: A Report on Indicators of Excellence.
Campion, William J.
The planning and evaluation process at Central Florida Community College (CFCC) is based on the identification of demonstrable outcomes measures, referred to as indicators of excellence (IE's). The indicators were developed during a 4-year long, institution-wide effort in which every employee had the opportunity to comment on proposed indicators. This report provides 1991-92 data on IE's related to transfer programs; career preparation programs; basic skills and developmental education programs; community education and community service programs; college access; educational outcomes related to instructional missions; student satisfaction; and progress in faculty improvement and the provision of financial and physical support to the instructional programs. Reported outcomes include the following: (1) university grade point averages (GPA's) of CFCC graduates appear to be rising, with a "B" average the norm; (2) 88% of vocational-technical programs, just under the IE goal of 90%, had at least a 70% job placement rate; (3) average grades for college preparatory students in their first college-level courses decreased for English but increased for mathematics; (4) community service programs reached a total of 2.1% of the service population; (5) compared to proportions in the service area, Black students were underrepresented at CFCC while Hispanic students were overrepresented; (6) 100% of the full-time faculty held teaching credentials, while 97% of the part-time faculty held credentials; and (7) during the fiscal year 1992, CFCC budgeted $577,000, or 3.9% of the total budget, for learning resources activities and programs. Tables and a review of CFCC's mission and objectives are included. (PAA)
