Parameters, Mar, Jul, Oct 1998
These three newsletters for 1998 highlight the following topics and issues. The March newsletter features an article on streamlining the transfer ready model, which includes an equation to find the transfer directed rate and the transfer ready rate. The new transfer ready model is divided into three categories, the beginning cohort, the transfer directed, and the transfer ready. Also included is review of a report on the accountability and performance in the California community colleges. Recommendations are included. The July newsletter focuses on uses of technology in community colleges and points to sources that provide informative accounts on instructor's experiences with technology and information about using technology tools in teaching. The newsletter also revisits a study on wage data, which supports the notion that there is a positive relationship between formal education and earnings. Implications on community colleges are included. The October issue looks at performance based funding and budgeting as a drastic departure from traditional budgeting. This paradigm shift expects to effectively utilize tax dollars while increasing accountability and services. All newsletters also highlight regional news and messages from the president. (JJL)
