Community College PQP/Program Review Supplemental Instructions and Reporting Requirements, 1995-1996. Addendum.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
As part of the annual program review reporting process, colleges in the Illinois Community College System are asked to respond to specific questions regarding current programs provided in an addendum to the state Program Review Guide. This report provides the additional questions for the 1995-96 program review in three sections. The first section provides questions to be addressed in the review of occupational programs, addressing the need for colleges to set higher benchmarks for their occupational student follow-up survey response rates and to develop articulation agreements for programs showing the greatest number of transfer students. The second section includes questions related to the following special focus areas: (1) faculty roles and responsibilities, focusing on faculty development, faculty reward systems, faculty evaluation, and scholarship; (2) the involvement of governing boards in planning, budgeting, and program approval; (3) the formation of a college priority statement, highlighting short-term objectives, decision-making for resource allocation, and program development; and (4) the preparation of an executive summary to the review focusing on low enrollment programs. The third section focuses on the review of undergraduate education. Appendixes provide an index and detailed submission requirements for the program review guide, clarifications to review instructions, a table of occupational programs to be reviewed in 1995-96, and excerpts from the Illinois Board of Higher Education reports related to guidelines for productivity improvements and priority setting.
