Evaluation of the Student Engagement Process in a Criminal Justice Program at a Technical College
Totzke, Martin W.
Online Submission
This applied dissertation was an evaluation of the student engagement practices offered to students in a criminal justice program at a Midwestern technical college. The problem was that an evaluation of the practices had not been conducted to provide data to indicate whether the current practices were effective. The researcher developed an evaluation tool to assess existing student engagement activities employed within the criminal justice department at the college. The expected criteria of the currently used activities were compared to expected criteria of best practices established for a student engagement process at a community college for vocational education practices and programs. The expected outcomes (criteria) of best practices for a student engagement process at the college criminal justice program were developed from the following resources: (a) a review of literature, (b) a survey administered to students currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at the college, and (c) a survey administered to faculty members of the criminal justice program. The evaluation of student engagement practices currently employed at the college identified gaps between expected outcomes of the current practices and expected outcomes for student engagement best practices model for a criminal justice applied associate degree program.
