Instructional Program Review.
Austin Community Coll., TX.
This document describes the 1993-94 program review process for Austin Community College (ACC), in Texas. First, the goals of program review are briefly reviewed and ACC's mission and instructional philosophy are set forth. The structure and process is then described, indicating that an Instructional Program Review Committee (PRC), formed of two faculty members, two support staff, and administrators, acts as the focal point of review, receiving reports from college-wide PRCs and forwarding recommendations to the Academic Council. This section also indicates that programs are reviewed once within a 5-year period and that the Instructional PRC identifies a program for review; the college-wide PRCs review the Data Collection Instrument (DCI), select chairpersons, and set review dates; after site visits are conducted, the PRCs review results and submit recommendations; and the Academic Council, Cabinet, and President review final reports. Information on the format and content of program review reports is then presented. Finally, the 68-page Instructional Program Review DCI is provided. It contains 14 sections and schedules related to curriculum, faculty, professional development, faculty support services, the program advisory committee/task force, program evaluation, program and college resources, safety, maintaining student records, fair practice, program uniqueness, cost effectiveness, and program effectiveness.
