In spring 1995, Florida's Pensacola Junior College (PJC) undertook the third assessment of institutional effectiveness using an assessment plan developed between 1990 and 1993. Outcomes were examined for the 1994-95 academic year with respect to the 51 goals, 147 objectives, and 253 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 for each of the goals. Results of the process included the following: (1) 84 of the 253 indicators were selected to be reported for 1994-95, although with multiple reports for some indicators a total of 171 indicator reports were received; (2) 90.6% (n=155) of the indicators were shown to have been fully met in terms of designated levels of performance; and (3) indicators that were not met included achieving an annual 1% improvement in retention rates, maintaining college energy usage below state guidelines, and achieving a 70% satisfaction rate for financial aid services. As a result of the process, it was recommended that the assessment be continued in 1995-96; that the total number of indicator reports generated be increased; and that more product-oriented, as opposed to process-oriented, indicators be developed. Tables showing outcomes by indicator are included. (HAA)
