Accountability and Productivity in the Illinois Community College System, Fiscal Year 1999.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This report summarizes accountability activities and initiatives submitted by Illinois' 48 community colleges in their Accountability/Program Review reports. The three primary sections of this report include Accountability Special Focus Areas, Analyses of the Results of Fiscal Year 1999 College Program Reviews, and State-Level Initiatives. Topics considered in the Accountability Special Focus section this year include College Priorities, Performance-Based Incentives--District-Based Goal, and Public Service Offerings. Programs in five academic disciplines, adult and developmental education and English as a Second Language, and 25 occupational/vocational program areas are examined in the Results of Fiscal Year 1999 College Program Reviews. The State-Level Initiatives section briefly highlights initiatives undertaken at the state level to promote accountability, quality and productivity. The report closes with recommendations: (1) the colleges should continue efforts to ensure that collection of noncredit student data can be fully reported to the board; (2) the colleges should explore strategies to accommodate the varying needs of students for credit and noncredit instruction, particularly in occupational areas that are dependent on constantly changing technology; and (3) the board should develop a process to simplify the review and approval of requests for new short-term certificates of less than 30 semester credit hours. Appended are Community College Program Review Summary Tables. (VWC)
