Institutional Effectiveness. Chancellor's Annual Report, 1993-1994.
Gainous, Fred; Romine, Robert J.
This report summarizes recent actions and decisions by The Alabama College System. Discussed is the Board's recent revision of the mission statement of the College System to emphasize institutional effectiveness. A description is provided of recent institutional consolidations and mergers, and schools that were re-designated as community colleges. Financial data and enrollment trends are displayed. The report advocates a continuous cycle of effective planning, implementation and evaluation to assure quality services and programs, and highlights of each of these three processes are provided. One section of the report describes the institutional effectiveness measures implemented to address the following specific areas of assessment for the system: college preparatory instruction, mandatory placement testing upon admission, and instructional program review. Three levels of program review have been instituted. At Level 1, an annual statistical review is completed, of indices predetermined by the Chancellor; at Level II a qualitative review of each instructional program is conducted during a five-year cycle; at Level III a systemwide review takes place as needed, based on information gathered from Levels I and II. Finally, a list of all the presidents and locations of each of Alabama's public colleges are provided. (VF)
