Performance Review: Associate in Science Programs. Report Years 1984-85 through 1997-98.
This report provides an update on the historical tracking of Associates in Science graduates by program. The data cover a 14-year span, and are helpful in looking at program trends and effectiveness. The report includes two types of tables. Tables 1-10 summarize data for A.S programs and comparisons of Florida's Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) with other state public community colleges. Tables 11-63 show 14 years of detailed information for all A.S. degree programs offered. Research finds that of the 53 programs in existence at M-DCC, 41 had placement rates of at least 75%, while 12 programs fell below 70%. Table 3 shows the 10 programs with the highest number of graduates, which account for two-thirds of total A.S. programs. Table 5 lists programs with highest in-program enrollments for 1998-97. Average enrollments exceed 5,400. Nursing is found to be the largest program. It is 2.6 times larger than its follower, Business Administration and Management. When compared to other Florida Community Colleges, M-DCC had the most graduates (1,260 or 13.1% of the entire state system). Of 1981 A.S. graduates, 31% transferred to the State University System (SUS). Ten years later 33% were continuing education. However only 10% of those are at the SUS, while 1.7% are at private universities and 21% are at community colleges. M-DCC serves 28% of the minority total for the Florida community college system, the largest amount system-wide. Forty percent of Hispanic A.S. students attend M-DCC. (PGS)
