Assessment Designs among Community Colleges. Revisited.
Hilgendorf, Erik J.
This paper is the follow-up and concluding study to a previous publication (summer 1998) that depicted assessment on all levels of education as being too complex. This current document reviews collaborative efforts between public postsecondary institutions and coordinating boards of higher education to survey 2,363 alumni from Missouri's community colleges, and compares the results with a separate survey from Crowder to its alumni. The purpose of the Crowder survey was to mirror a portion of the former collaborative study without exact replication. The questions on the Crowder survey concerned services like financial aid, advising, bookstore, intramurals, and accomplishments such as knowledge within major, intellectual enhancement, accrued abilities, and appreciation for academic subjects. Findings showed that Crowder's cohort consistently indicated greater levels of satisfaction than the sample surveyed in the collaborative survey. Included in this document is the Crowder College Survey of Outcomes Spring 98 and State Two-Year Study (collaborative) contrasted. (AS)
