Evaluation of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum by Community College Transfer Students and Community College Counseling Faculty.
Perry, Janis; Morrison, Peter; Rudmann, Jerry
The Academic Senate of the California Community Colleges created this document in 2001. Its goal is to measure the degree of use, effectiveness, and acceptance of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC). The study was completed through three different questionnaires: (1) one was distributed to recent community college transfer students preparing to graduate; (2) another was distributed to professional guidance faculty in the California Community College System; and (3) the last one was given to the chief student services administrators at each of the California Community Colleges. The study had a 10% response rate. The study concluded that the IGETC pattern of lower-division general education requirements is well known to community college transfer students and it would become even more popular with an extended effort at community colleges and four-year colleges and universities to inform students of their about the program. If more students knew of the benefits that they would gain IGETC pattern then it would increase the number of students that utilized it and benefited from it. Those students that knew of the IGETC pattern viewed it as a flexible alternative that maximizes the student's options more than any other available program. (MZ)
