This report provides the methodology, results, and highlights of a survey developed to assess general education satisfaction of graduates as well as to collect data essential to Nevada's Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) Performance Indicators. The Graduate Outcomes Survey is an annual questionnaire distributed to all TMCC students receiving degrees and certificates. Questions are designed to elicit information related to general instruction, educational atmosphere, technology-oriented education, degree-related employment, and variations in opinions and experiences by degree earned. The target population for this survey was all students graduating from TMCC in fall 1997, spring 1998 and summer 1998. Eighty-nine percent of the respondents indicated that they had attained their educational goals throughout their coursework at TMCC. Seventy-seven percent felt that TMCC provided adequate computer access to students, while 72% stated that instructional equipment adequately met student needs and demands. Approximately 80% of the students responding to the survey stated that they were currently employed. More than 40% of the graduates indicated employment in fields related to their degree. (JA)
