Graduate Follow-Up Report, 1998-99.
Wisconsin Technical Coll. System Board, Madison.
The Graduate Follow-Up Survey is conducted annually to gather data regarding the activities and perceptions of students approximately six months after their graduation from Wisconsin's 16 technical colleges. The objectives of the survey are to identify the current activities of program graduates, to determine the extent to which current activities are related to the educational programs, to provide information to be used as tools in career awareness and planning efforts, and to provide data to facilitate program planning, evaluation, and development. In 1999, a total of 15,365 graduates were surveyed and 11,538 responded, for a response rate of 75 percent. Ninety-six percent of respondents were employed and four percent were seeking employment. Ninety-seven percent of respondents indicated that they were very satisfied or satisfied with training received at the colleges, and 83 percent of those employed indicated that their job is related to training received. The median annual salary for all respondents was $24,594. Key tables and figures include: (1) Demographic Data; (2) Reason for attending; (3) Satisfaction with Training; (4) Employment Status; (5) Employment Location; (6) Employment Related to Training by Instructional Division; (7) Median Annual Salaries by Instructional Division; and (8) Follow-Up Data by Program.
