This report includes comprehensive goal, objective, indicator, and use statement data; analysis of indicators; conclusions; and recommendations. In spring 1994, Florida's Pensacola Junior College (PJC) undertook the second assessment of institutional effectiveness using an assessment plan developed between 1990 and 1993. Outcomes were examined for the 1993-94 academic year with respect to the 51 goals, 147 objectives, and 147 indicators of effectiveness identified by the assessment plan in 16 functional areas. Area supervisors were requested to report on at least one objective and one indicator, although many selected more than one. Results of the process included the following: (1) a total of 154 indicator reports were received from the supervisors for 1993-94; (2) based on these reports, 86.4% (n=133) of the indicators were fully achieved in terms of levels of performance designated in the assessment plan; and (3) indicators that were not met included achieving the correct placement of 90% of first-time-in-college students, implementing computerized placement tests, and maintaining course syllabi on file. As a result of the process, it was recommended that the assessment be continued in 1994-95 and simplified to reduce the number of indicators; that the total number of indicator reports generated be increased; and that more product-oriented, as opposed to process-oriented, indicators be developed. Data tables are appended. (HAA)
