National Institutional Priorities Report, 2002.
USA Group Noel-Levitz, Iowa City, IA.
This report describes the sixth annual National Institutional Priorities Study conducted to determine the perceptions of faculty, administration, and staff regarding areas of highest important and areas of greatest and least agreement on meeting student expectations. Also identified were the greatest performance gaps between levels of importance and levels of agreement. The survey uses the Institutional Priorities Survey (ISP) to gather information. The 2002 National Institutional Priorities Report represents data from 296 colleges, with 10,831 faculty members from four-year public colleges, 12,840 from four-year private institutions, and 13,914 from two-year institutions. Mean scores for importance, agreement, and the performance gap are given for the 13 scales of the instrument. A matrix is presented that can be used to prioritize action to improve various aspects of the institution. Strengths and challenges to higher education are summarized by institution type. Trends in importance, agreement, and performance gap are also summarized across the most recent 5 years of data. Ways to use ISP data are reviewed. (SLD)
