Institutional and Program Planning Research Brief, 1997.
Institutional and Program Planning Research Brief, v7 n1-3 Aug-Nov 1997
The three issues of this 1997 research brief provide information about institutional programming and planning at St. Petersburg Junior College (SPJC) (Florida). Brief number 1 summarizes the 1996 Enrolled Student Survey and contains sections on student demographics, student satisfaction ratings, and open-ended questions about academic and support services. Results indicate that students had an overall satisfaction with campus services. Brief number 2 is a specific demographic report of the Survey of Entering Students for Sessions I, II, and III, 1996-97. Demographic trends showed larger numbers of white, traditional aged (18 to 20 years of age) and female students. The majority of students, 52 percent, indicated that they desired to eventually transfer to a four-year college. Brief number 3 reports the results of the statewide accountability measures 1-5, which cover: (1) enrollment/retention/success; (2) degree transfer rates; (3) state licensure passing rates/ vocational program placement rates; (4) college preparatory success; and (5) performance on the state college skills proficiency exam. The junior college currently meets or exceeds the statewide performance measures for all accountability measures accept for the Associate of Arts degree transfer rates and state licensing examination pass rates. SPCJ's retention rates were higher than the statewide average. (AF)
