A Survey of Former Office Administration Students. Summary Findings of Respondents District-Wide.
Glyer, Culver, Betty
In fall 2002 staff of the Los Rios Community College District (LRCCD) Office of Institutional Research collaborated with occupational deans, academic deans, and faculty to develop and administer a survey of former students of Office Administration. The survey was designed to determine how well courses had met the needs of former Office Administration students. Of the 230 surveys sent to former students, 92 were returned, a response rate of 40%. The report provides a list of the course content areas in which respondents thought they had been well prepared for work and areas in which some students believed they had not been well prepared. Similar listings are provided for employment skill areas in which students believed they had been well prepared or, in some cases, not well prepared. Employment and salary information are given for survey respondents, and a demographic profile is provided. A substantial proportion of respondents were currently taking or interested in taking additional classes in the LRCCD. (SLD)
