Pensacola Junior Coll., FL. Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness.
In fall 1993 and in spring 1994, Florida's Pensacola Junior College (PJC) surveyed all Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and certificate graduates, using the Two-Year College Form of the American College Testing (ACT) Student Opinion Survey. Information was sought regarding graduates' reasons for selecting PJC; ratings of PJC at the time of application for admission; opinions regarding whether they would choose PJC again if starting college over; ratings of the overall "impressiveness of quality" at PJC; use of student services; satisfaction with student services and other aspects of the college; and college experience, including credits taken, employment while attending, decisions regarding their major, student-faculty communication, and the helpfulness of college services. Usable responses were received from 167 of the 439 fall 1993 graduates and 215 of the 560 spring 1994 graduates. Study findings included the following: (1) the three most commonly cited major reasons for selecting PJC were convenient location, the availability of desired courses, and low cost; (2) 80.9% of the respondents rated PJC's educational quality as excellent or good; (3) only 74.6% of the respondents indicated that they had used academic advising services; and (4) in general, respondents were satisfied with PJC services and programs. Data on respondents' demographic characteristics are appended. (HAA)
