Public University Program Review: Statewide Analyses.
Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
In 1994-95, all Illinois public colleges and universities and some Illinois private colleges and universities are required to submit reviews of their baccalaureate programs in education (primarily teacher preparation programs) and academic programs at all levels in the fields of English language/literature and mathematics. This package of materials was issued preparatory to the campus reviews, to identify issues that should be addressed in the review reports. The background information on analysis of teacher preparation programs discusses program approval by the State Superintendent of Education in consultation with the State Teacher Certification Board, teacher supply and demand trends, comparative costs, program quality and effectiveness, and specific issues that universities are asked to address. The background information on analysis of English language and literature programs focuses on trends in student enrollments and degrees conferred in English programs at Baccalaureate, Master's, and Doctoral levels; speech programs at all three levels; programs in other specialized fields; and issues that universities are asked to address in their review reports. The background information on analysis of mathematics programs outlines enrollment and annual degrees conferred at the Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral levels and specific issues to be addressed in program review reports.
