Major Activities

Postsecondary students are given a brief survey in the beginning of the course pertaining to reasons for attending James Rumsey Technical Institute and how they heard information about the school/program of study. This information is evaluated by student services and administration to determine the effectiveness of the school’s publicity, marketing, and advertising in attracting students. Collected data is presented to school administrators, advisory council, and staff for feedback and suggestions for areas of improvement.

Postsecondary students are given two (2) evaluation program surveys to evaluate James Rumsey instructors and programs (textbooks, equipment, materials, and instructor.) The surveys are given annually upon student completion or withdrawal of a program. Information is evaluated by the administration and student support services and then shared with the appropriate staff member for program improvement. The information is also used to create staff development programs for the entire staff in areas of improvement.

Major Publications

All plans, including the Student Services Effectiveness Plan, can be found on the school’s website.
