Testa, Alec M.
The DATAWave is a bi-weekly publication that is designed to inform the campus community and broader constituencies on assessment issues and practices at Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU). The first issue of this fourth volume covers survey results about the effectiveness of the ENMU Assessment Resource Office (ARO) and presents a fall preview of ARO activities. Issues two and three report findings from the Cooperative Institute Research Project, a survey administered to freshmen at 641 colleges. In issue two, survey results about attitudes, behaviors, and goals for 425 first time ENMU freshmen are reported, and in issue three the focus is on faculty results. At ENMU 96 full-time undergraduate faculty responded as part of the more than 33,986 faculty members nationwide. Issue four reports that results of a survey of employers asked to rate ENMU students indicate that employers generally found ENMU graduates well-prepared. Issue five presents results from the Student Satisfaction Survey, which documents a high degree of student dissatisfaction with many aspects of university life. Issue six contains an update on Outcomes Assessment Activities, Assessment of the Eastern Mission, an Outcomes Assessment Matrix, and a list of the recipients of the fall 1996 Outcomes Assessment Grant awards. Issue seven reports results from the 1992 and 1996 Diversity Survey. (Contains 5 tables and 19 figures.) (SLD)
