This student learning outcomes assessment report from Prince George's Community College (PGCC) in Maryland summarizes findings of several ongoing assessments. Part I provides an executive summary and reviews changes in academic regulations and standards adopted in 1993-94, including: (1) extending minimum standards for academic standing to include developmental courses; (2) adding the category of academic restriction, which limits course registration for students who fail to meet certain standards while on academic probation; (3) setting a 12-credit limit for deferring placement testing or prescribed remediation; (4) tightening the course repeat policy; (5) increasing the severity of academic dismissal by extending the time period when registration is prohibited; and (6) introducing new departmental reading prerequisites, so that over 80% of all introductory courses now require a minimum reading proficiency level. Part II provides data tables and analysis of the following student outcome indicators: achievement of general education objectives; student persistence; graduation rates; transfer to senior institutions; performance of former PGCC students at transfer institutions; licensure and certification examination results; graduate employment; graduate survey findings; student evaluation of teaching; institutional indicators; developmental education; and course pass rates. When appropriate, plans for innovations and changes in these areas are presented. (KP)
