Harris, Virginia B.
This practicum report evaluates student perception of the conversion to a semester academic calendar at Snead State Community College (Alabama). A survey instrument was used to record the responses of students at Snead about whether they viewed the conversion to a semester academic calendar to be a positive experience. Results of the study showed that 90.84% of students believed that transferring classes to four-year universities was simpler with all state system colleges and universities based on the semester academic calendar. Furthermore, students rated academic advisement and student services favorably in regard to the transition to the semester academic calendar. About 81% of the students said the materials provided by the college were helpful in understanding the transition to a semester academic calendar. Results also revealed that 69.64% of students believe they have a greater understanding of class material due to the semester academic calendar and the longer number of weeks spent in class. About 78% of students felt that the semester academic calendar would allow more time for family obligations. Appendices include survey instrument and survey responses. Contains 21 references. (JA)
