Austin Community Coll., TX. Office of Institutional Effectiveness.
This document is the annual effectiveness improvements report for Austin Community College in 2003. The report summarizes which improvements have been implemented and whether they have been successful or not. The seven areas of improvement that are looked at are: (1) workforce education; (2) transfer programs; (3) continuing education; (4) adult education; (5) developmental education; (6) access and diversity; and (7) student retention. The document addresses improvements that were made in each area and concludes with the following recommendation to be implemented in the future: (1) effectiveness measures should be defined in such a way to align with the mission of the school meaning that new goals should be redefined for the future; (2) the Associate Vice Presidents are responsible for revisiting the current measures in order to ensure that each area is reporting information in such a way to allow the school to fulfill its mission statement; (3) Associate Vice Presidents are responsible for reporting improvement data that has been made in different areas in order to help in the writing in the next annual effectiveness report; (4) all information collected on the measures and levels of improvement should be used in order to create a master plan; and (5) unit level assessment should address at least one critical success area.
