This document contains volume 10 (2000-2001) of St. Petersburg College's (formerly St. Petersburg Junior College) (Florida) Research Brief. Issue 1 addresses performance-based program funding, stating that programs have been established to reward high performing colleges, rather than simply funding according to FTE (full-time equivalent) enrollment. This brief outlines the measures that make up the Performance Based Program Budgeting (PBB). As of 2000, the program is limited to associate degree students, and measures completers, success of graduates, and placements, state university transfers, and partial completers. Issue 2 discusses factors related to high school graduates' readiness to enroll in college-level courses. Issue 3 is an employer survey of 1998-99 St. Petersburg College (SPC) graduates, which reveals that 97% of employers indicated they would hire another SPC graduate, while no employer indicated they would not hire another SPC graduate. Issue 4 is a comparison of faculty adjunct salaries in Florida Community Colleges. This study found that salaries range from a low of $300 per credit hour for an adjunct with an associate's degree, to a high of $642 per credit hour for an adjunct with a doctorate. Finally, Issue 5 compares degrees and certificates with credit FTE earned. Among college-level completions, the associate's degree is awarded most frequently: 58% of degrees awarded at SPJC, and a system total of 67%. (NB)
