Beachler, Judith A.; Pagtalunan, Jose
As part of a districtwide follow-up study, California's Cosumnes River College (CRC) surveyed 1,398 former students from 1993-94 to gather information on student outcomes and characteristics. This report presents findings for the college by academic program. First, a brief discussion of survey methodology is provided, indicating that surveys were sent to all graduates and certificate earners and a random sample of non-returning students who had not graduated; tables showing response rates are presented, indicating that 530 former students responded; and tables of overall responses are provided. Tables of responses are then presented for occupational education programs, including accounting, automotive mechanics technology, general business, communications media, computer information science, early childhood education, health information technology, medical assisting, and office administration. Responses are then presented for general programs, including general education or transfer/liberal arts, mathematics, and social sciences, and for students with undeclared majors. For each section of responses, data are provided on student demographics, including completion and attendance status, gender, ethnicity, and age; college experience, including objectives and goals, reasons for not re-enrolling, units completed, license examination outcomes, satisfaction with CRC, rating of services, and benefits in terms of career plans; employment information, including student employment in jobs related and unrelated their studies; and continuing education status, including enrollment and transfer status and problems transferring.
