Institutional and Program Planning Research Brief, 1998-1999.
Institutional and Program Planning Research Brief, v8 n1-6 Aug 1998-May 1999
This series of research briefs provides information about institutional programming and planning at St. Petersburg Junior College (SPJC) (Florida). Briefs number 1 and 6 provide survey results of enrolled students for fall 1997 and for the year 1996-97. Brief number 2 reviews the five statewide accountability measures concerning, among other items, performance on the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST). This is the state mandatory exam that must be taken after completing 60 credit hours at the college. Assessment outcomes indicate that SPJC's current performance meets or exceeds statewide performances for the majority of statewide accountability measures. Brief number 3 describes placement information and incentive funding. Brief number 4 summarizes the employer survey of the 1996-97 graduates as compared to the 1995-96 graduates. Results indicate that in each area of job preparation and performance based skills, employers rated the 1996-97 very favorably and slightly improved from 1995-96. Brief number 5 provides a review of institutional planning and research evaluation. Holistically, the briefs provide a concise yet comprehensive look at SPJC. (AF)
