Report to Arizona 1999.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.
This is the first of what is expected to be a regular series of reports from Arizona's community colleges to the citizens of Arizona regarding the effectiveness with which community colleges are achieving their goals. Initially the Task Force on Institutional Effectiveness Measures worked for most of an academic year and recommended the measures included in this report. The data are briefly described, the source of the data are indicated, and observations regarding the story being told by the data are presented in the report. The elements addressed in this Report to Arizona include the following: (1) access, which looks at participation rates, ethnic and racial representation, financial aid awards, developmental education enrollment, and course availability; (2) work force training and development, which reports on occupational program participation and completion rates, placement and wages, and employer satisfaction; (3) transfer students, which examines the number and success of transfer students and effectiveness of the new transfer model; (4) community development, which explores small business development centers, and social, economic, and/or cultural development activities; and (5) student learning outcomes, which presents the measures being developed by the community colleges. The purpose of this report is to focus on community colleges as a state resource and not to rate or compare individual colleges. (VWC)
