Providing data for Year 3 of a state-approved accountability plan developed by Florida's Pensacola Junior College (PJC), this report provides baseline data on outcomes for 1995-96. Data tables are provided for the following outcome measures: enrollment of prior year high school graduates; retention and success rates for Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), and vocational certificate recipients; performance of AA transfers by ethnicity; state licensure test pass rates by program; job placement rates of AS and certificate completers; success rates for PJC college preparatory students; college preparatory retention and success rates for AA, AS, and certificate recipients; and results on the college skills assessment test. Each table includes a definition of the related measure and a list of planned activities or strategies planned. Selected findings include the following: (1) 32% of the 337 full-time AA students starting in fall 1992 had graduated after 4 years, compared to 35% of the 107 AS students and 50% of the 2 certificate students; (2) the mean grade point average of AA students who transferred to the state university system was 2.77 in summer 1994-95; and (3) 88.9% of the 574 AS and certificate recipients from 1993-94 had been placed in jobs by 1995. Additional tables showing goals not yet met, outcomes per measure, changes in outcomes between 1994 and 1996, and comparisons of PJC outcomes with other Florida community colleges are attached. (HAA)
