The "DATAWave" is a publication of the Assessment Resource Office of Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) (Portales) that reports on research conducted by that unit and research related to the university community. This volume contains seven issues. The first issue reports on a Diversity Survey administered to ENMU personnel and students. When results of a similar survey in 1992 were compared with the current year's results, it appears that ENMU has made great strides in improving the campus climate with respect to diversity issues. The second issue presents results from the Cooperative Institute Research Program of the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, for college freshmen in national and ENMU samples about student characteristics. In the third issue, the ENMU Academic Outcomes Assessment Plan (AOAP) for the university's general education curriculum is presented. Issue 4 outlines the Assessment Criteria/Procedures and the results. The issue also identifies strengths and concerns of the program based on the results. Issue 5 continues the discussion of the AOAP for the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences by discipline. Issue 6 presents a sampling of the initial assessment results for departments in the College of Education and Technology, the College of Fine Arts, and the College of Business for the AOAP from 1995-96. Issue 7 presents results from a survey of student satisfaction at ENMU. In all cases, measures of student satisfaction increased from the initial survey in 1994. (Contains 7 tables and 30 graphs.)
