Class of 2000 Survey
Orcutt, Jeffrey Chapman
The 1996 revision of the K plan defined the College's educational goals in terms of five core dimensions of student development: lifelong learning, intercultural understanding, leadership, social responsibility, and career readiness. The plan also identified four key skills that the College believes to be "essential" to liberal arts education: written expression, oral expression, quantitative reasoning, and information and computer literacy. In order to provide a baseline profile of the College's success with these core goals, the class of 2000 senior survey sought to operationalize and assess each of the five dimensions and four skills. In a few instances it was possible to use questions from, or similar to, the CIRP survey which was administered to entering students during their orientation week. These questions make it possible to compare graduating seniors' responses to those they gave as entering first year students. In most cases, however, new questions had to be devised, which serve as a baseline or profile of graduating seniors.
