Organizational Effectiveness through Assessing Institutional Outcomes: Measuring the Transfer Function at CCTC.
Mohammadi, John; Danek, Kim
This study assesses the academic performance of Capital Community-Technical College (CCTC) students who transferred to senior institutions in Connecticut and neighboring states between the academic years of 1993-94 and 1996-97. It was designed to address the students' experience at CCTC as compared to the students' experiences at their senior institutions, and the relationships between the CCTC experience and the outcomes at the senior institutions. A total of 27 senior institutions participated in the study. A questionnaire was distributed to former CCTC students to measure the extent to which they have achieved their goals, and to gather information on the students' perceptions of their satisfaction with the quality of academic and student services provided by CCTC. A total of 101 students responded to the questionnaire. The study found that 61.4% of respondents achieved their educational goals "to a great extent", while an additional 31.7% achieved their educational goals "to some extent." In regards to student and academic services, "grade reporting/transcript processing" and "course content" received the highest ratings (80.6% and 88.3% respectively), while "counseling for program/course selection" and "instructional support for my curriculum" received the lowest rankings (31.7% and 27.2% respectively). Tabled results are presented for each of the 12 questions. The survey instrument, the list of participating senior institutions, CCTC's mission statement, and a list of majors offered at CCTC are appended. (TGO)
