Summary

A questionnaire was developed to survey recent graduates of the electrical systems specialization in the Industrial Technology program at the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) School of Technology. First, the pertinent literature was reviewed and a formative committee consisting of CCSU faculty and staff and the board of trustees of Connecticut State University was established to identify criteria for developing reliable and valid questions. A draft questionnaire was developed and pilot tested with five graduates of the electrical systems program. Next, the questionnaire was revised based on the formative committee's evaluation and the pilot study's results. The final questionnaire consisted of 26 questions soliciting the following information: students' employment during and after college; graduates' use of certain general skills in their job; extent to which their education contributed to development of those skills; helpfulness of each of the required core and technical courses in the electrical systems curriculum in obtaining a job and succeeding in it; graduates' overall satisfaction with the electrical systems program and its faculty, curriculum, and facilities. (The paper contains 23 references. Appended are the following: 20 criteria for evaluating the questionnaire's appearance, ease of completion, and questions; cover letter to accompany the questionnaire; and questionnaire.) (MN)
