Peralta Community College District Program Review Manual, 1996-1997.
Peralta Community Coll. System, Oakland, CA.
This program review manual provides a common or minimum set of review criteria and standard reporting procedures for colleges to use in conducting a self study to determine how well programs are functioning in relation to stated objectives, the mission and resources of the college and district, and the needs of the students and the community served. Program review is essential in maintaining departmental vitality, demonstrating institutional effectiveness, and meeting accountability mandates set forth in Peralta's local institutional planning process and regional and national accreditation. The program review should indicate whether the program is effective and should continue as is, or if the curriculum needs to be altered, goals and objectives redefined, etc. Details on the composition of the program review team, procedures to follow, report format, availability of data, and time lines are described. Questions to guide the program review are listed by three main categories: Where have we been? Where are we now? Where can we go from here? Separate program review guides, data charts, and sample questionnaires are provided for liberal arts programs and occupational/vocations/ career programs. (JJL)
