Armstrong, William B.
This report compares San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) measures of student enrollment and academic achievement with similar measures for the California Community College (CCC) System. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the colleges' collective mission to meet the postsecondary education needs of their students, and to identify educational and fiscal strengths and weaknesses in order to improve quality. The first section of the report focuses on student access and provides information on headcount enrollment for fall 95 by: (1) gender; (2) age; (3) race/ethnicity; (4) unit load; (5) day/evening status; (6) enrollment status; and (7) first-time students by race/ethnicity. The second section discusses student success and includes the following information: (1) student goals; (2) credit course enrollment by gender and ethnicity; (3) total course enrollment by letter grade; (4) successful course completion; (5) course retention; (6) persistence rates for full- and part-time students by gender, age, ethnicity, and educational goal; (7) transfer statistics; and (8) earnings by gender, last year and third year after college. Both sections compare statewide data from CCC and the SDCCD, and include graphs, data tables, and summaries for each indicator. (AS)
