Parkland College ICCB Accountability/Program Review Report.
Parkland Coll., Champaign, IL. Office of Institutional Research and Evaluation.
This document presents data from the 2002 Accountability Program Review of Parkland College, Illinois. The data, for fiscal years 1997-2001, is presented in tables, and is divided into three parts: (1) Program Review Summaries. This section offers data covering student headcounts, attempted credit hours, and percentage of completers. The section also presents data regarding labor market analyses, faculty, and facility and equipment condition by instructional program. (2) Accountability/Program Review Action Summaries. Highlights of the second section include the following: (a) There was a 22% enrollment decrease in Chemistry 101 between 1997 and 2001. This decrease might be explained by the creation of new General Education Chemistry sections, which may be siphoning off enrollment of non-science majors from the traditional chemistry courses. (b) Retention of students in all five natural science areas has remained consistent. Finally, the third section is titled "Occupational Program Reviews and Special Focus Questions." Parkland administers the Occupational Follow-Up Survey every year. For Fiscal Year 2000, 550 graduates were contacted, and 382 responded for a response rate of 69.5%. The Special Focus questions address teacher preparation and professional development. The document also offers a Five-Year Schedule of Program Reviews for Fiscal Years 2003-2007. (NB)
