Trident Technical College Summary of Assessment Results for 2001-2002.
Trident Technical Coll., Charleston, SC.
This institutional effectiveness (IE) report for Trident Technical College (TTC), South Carolina, describes majors and concentrations, academic advisement, and transfer. The 2001-2002 academic year marked the tenth year of Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) for the college. GAS is a systematic means of developing an individual yardstick for assessing the performance of individual programs and services. The GAS process allows individuals responsible for each program or service to identify performance indicators and levels of performance. Highlights of the report include the following: (1) the report assessed 19 majors, which include 10 associate degree programs, 8 certificate programs, and 1 diploma program; (2) the report found that 92% of summer 2002 enrollees were registered by their assigned advisor, while in spring 2002, 57% of enrollees registered during the early registration period--the goal is for all students assigned to an advisor to register during this early period in order to avoid the registration crunch; and (3) the fall 2001 transfer cohort consisted of 245 students, a 53% increase over the fall 1999 cohort of 160 students. Transfer students' fall 2001 average grade point average at all institutions was 2.45, compared with native students' average GPA at all institutions of 2.72. (NB)
