Summary

The results of an evaluation of the Florida Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS) are discussed. Surveys were conducted with the institutional liaison officers to SCNS, as well as with faculty members and department chairs. The uniform course numbering system is designed to enhance articulation, particularly the efficient movement of students from the public community colleges to the state universities of Florida. Computerized academic advising systems have been helpful, especially for transfer students who wish to evaluate comparable courses at different institutions. Attention is directed to the following types of usage of SCNS products and services: admissions and registration, articulation and course comparability, creation of a community of scholars, counseling and advisement, curriculum analysis, funding methods and student costs, regional analysis and course comparability, and maximizing student course transfers. It is claimed that the most deficient areas of usage of SCNS materials occurs at the department level. Only 7 percent of the total faculty respondents to the evaluation survey indicated they had ever used the microfiche of the course inventory and discipline taxonomies. (SW)
