South Texas Community Coll., McAllen. Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness.
The report summarizes the preliminary findings from the Institutional Self-Study Follow-Up Survey of the faculty, administrators, staff, and students at South Texas Community College (STCC). The follow-up study was intended to address areas that were found to be of sufficient concern in the committee reports of the original Self-Study Survey as to warrant recommendations in the Institutional Self-Study. In the original Self-Study Survey, administered in fall 1998, 59 percent of the faculty respondents answered positively to the question regarding the adequacy of the on-line catalogue at the Learning Resource Center. In the Self-Study Follow-Up Survey, administered in spring 2000, the figure rose to 82 percent. Findings for administrator respondents indicated an improvement in the proportion reporting an understanding of the duties of the president and other administrators since the original survey. Findings for staff showed an improvement in satisfaction with training in the use of computer software (58 percent to 72 percent). Students continue to be well satisfied with most areas receiving recommendations in STCC's Institutional Self-Study. Over 80% of the student cohort in both the original and the follow-up survey responded that STCC adequately defines what is meant by a major or an area of concentration. (JA)
