Effectiveness Update: Academic Programs Transfer Effectiveness Measures.
Austin Community Coll., TX.
This document is a compilation of reports that outline various institutional effectiveness measures and present assessment results and data at Austin Community College (ACC) (Texas). The College Effectiveness Update reports include Academic Programs Transfer Effectiveness Measures, Workforce Education Effectiveness Measures, Developmental Educational Measures, Retention Effectiveness Measures, and Student Services Measures. Each report describes the purpose, intended outcome, criterion, results, and data of one or more effectiveness measure. The purpose of the 'academic programs transfer effectiveness measures' is to prepare students for successful college or university transfer. The intended outcome of the 'workforce education effectiveness measures' is for students in workforce education programs to meet their educational goals. The criterion for 'retention effectiveness measures' is that the percentage of FTIC degree-seeking students enrolled in the fall semester who return the following spring semester will be higher than the state average. Results indicate that the percentage of ACC's fall 1996 FTIC degree-seeking students who returned in spring 1997 (58.6%) is 7.3 percent below the statewide average return rate of 65.9%. The intended outcome of the 'student services effectiveness measures' is for the unduplicated headcount enrollment of ACC to reflect the diversity of the population the College serves.
