Program Review: Outcome Measures of Miami-Dade Community College Associate in Science Graduates from 1984-85 through 1992-93. Research Report No. 93-14R.
Part of an effort to demonstrate performance outcomes at Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC), in Florida, this report provides data on enrollment, completions, and job placements for Associate in Science (AS) graduates at the college from 1984-85 through 1992-93. The first section discusses program review at M-DCC, indicating that a program is considered successful if 70% of its graduates are employed in a job related to their field, continuing their education, or in the military. The bulk of the report consists of 65 tables presenting the following information: (1) placement of AS graduates by program title for 1989-90, 1990-91, and 1991-92; (2) placement rates for programs that fell below the 70% placement criterion, 1989-92; (3) graduates for programs with fewer than 15 enrollments for at least 1 year, 1990-93; (4) programs with no graduates for at least 1 year, 1990-93; (5) distribution by campus of AS degree programs, 1993-94; (6) licensure examination pass rates, 1991-92; (7) graduates attending public universities, 1991-92; (8) graduates attending Florida International University in 1991; and (9) numbers of enrollees, graduates, and graduate places for 55 program titles, 1984-93. Appendixes provide information on the three levels of program review at M-DCC (i.e., identify programs below criteria, develop recommendations for program improvement, and respond to system-wide funding and articulation concerns); statistical performance measures for vocational programs; sample survey instruments for graduates and program managers; a list of industries and firms employing one or more of the school's AS graduates; and academic progress indicators for graduates at Florida International University. Contains 26 references. (ECC)
