Development of an Implementation Plan for Assessing Institutional Effectiveness at Lakeshore Technical College.
Lanser, Michael A.
A study developed a plan for implementing the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) Institutional Effectiveness Model at Lakeshore Technical College (LTC). A literature review identified several models in place for assessing effectiveness at colleges. Efforts were underway in the WTCS to develop implementation strategies. The president and administrators for educational and administrative services at LTC established the criteria for the implementation plan by brainstorming and then grouping the items under similar categories. To assess progress toward implementing an effectiveness model, a survey was conducted to identify what was being done, who was responsible, and what the status of the effort was. Results indicated a significant amount of assessment activity, most in the Goal Oriented Adult Learning Program, and a limited number of future planned activities. Plans from two other colleges in the WTCS were reviewed as benchmarks. A draft implementation plan was developed with these components: implementation activities, steering committee, implementation schedule, alignment of LTC model to WTCS model, assessment of progress, and data collection standards. The LTC Student Academic Achievement Model and WTCS Institutional Effectiveness Model were found to compare in all areas except student grades. LTC's executive committee adopted the revised plan. (Appendixes contain 14 references, implementation plan criteria, progress assessment form, and implementation plan.) (YLB)
