San Antonio College Academic Program Review. Revised 1998.
San Antonio Coll., TX.
This document presents the purpose, scope, timeline, and steps involved in the academic program review process and the format of the Program Review Report at San Antonio College (Texas). Academic review examines the qualitative and quantitative elements of instructional programs. The review process assists in determining the continuing validity of various academic programs in relation to the educational mission of the college. All departments within the college must undergo program review every five years. Since the review of a program is designed to force its assessment from many perspectives, the process necessarily involves different levels. The key steps in the procedure are as follows: (1) Departmental Committee obtains appendices from Institutional Research and Effectiveness; (2) Department Chair adds the summary to the report; (3) Divisional Dean, Executive Vice President, and College Program Review Committee review report and add assessment form; (4) College Program Review Committee conducts a hearing with the Departmental Committee; and (5) Executive Vice President reviews report, adds final assessment form, and submits the results to the President. The Program Review Report consists of the report proper and the supporting documentation. The report proper must summarize the outstanding accomplishments and important data supplied in the Appendices, identify strengths and problems, and suggest possible remedies. Ten appendices include labor market information and the assessment and recommendation form. (JA)
