CCPRO 2006 Post-Conference Session Recap
CCPRO ANNUAL CONFERENCE
February 27 –
1st Timers Meeting: Mark Puterbaugh, Davidson CC
For planners and researchers new to CCPRO, or those who might like a refresher, this session will be an informal opportunity to hear what CCPRO has to offer.
General Session I: Dr. Mark Milliron, SAS
Break Out I: CCSP 2007. Gabe Rench, CCBenefits
Come see the next generation of the CCSP (Community College Strategic Planner)! You
will learn how to use the new “one-click” reports and integrated IPEDS data to save time
and give your college the data it needs to lead your local economy.
Break Out II: Calculating Transfers for IPEDS: Dr. Rex Clay,
The purpose of the presentation is to demonstrate a procedure to use SAS software to
report COHORT students to the National Student Clearinghouse and then use its
information to count the number of COHORT students who transferred to 2 and 4-year
colleges prior to completion. It is of the utmost importance to report the number of students
who transfer out prior to graduation. Otherwise, they will be counted as noncompleters, thus
artificially lowering the graduation rate reported to IPEDS, and often to the media and
Break Out III: 10 Things to Know About SACS: Dr. John Gossett, Mayland
The Compliance Certificate is the internal check of the organization that begins the
reaffirmation process. Learn ten things to do (or not do) as you navigate the process of
determining – and documenting – the extent of your institution’s compliance.
Break Out IV: Online Surveys: A Panel Discussion: Dr. Polly Davis,
Break Out V: FTE Cost Centers: Dr. Janice Gilliam, Haywood CC
An overview of various reports produced for critical decision making will be presented. A
major objective will be to share how we have used technology at HCC to improve the
efficiency of gathering reports. Access, Excel, and SPSS are all used to manipulate the
data to produce reports. We will also share our “homegrown” strategic planning model,
now in the third year of implementation.
Break Out VI: From IR Office to the Classroom: Dr. John Quinley, Isothermal CC.
Assessment efforts maintain buy-in and foster wider improvement when the effort is shifted
from indirect measures of student learning and the IR office to direct measures of student
learning and the classrooms of faculty members. This presentation will share the progress
provided from the college’s self-study documents.
LUNCHEON: Dr. Leila Gonzalez-Sullivan, NILIE - Creating the Climate for Change
The fundamental task of any leader is change. Otherwise, who needs a leader?
Understanding a college's culture and creating an environment that welcomes and rewards
change is essential for leaders at all levels who wish to guide their institution successfully
into the future.

Break Out VII: Introducing Class Climate from Scantron: Glen Evans
Class Climate is Scantron's ultimate tool for survey-based evaluation in education. It allows
you to conduct hundreds of surveys using a mixed online and paper approach through a
central server. Distributed scanning and a web-based form designer add additional
functionality for distributed campus environments. Class Climate handles questionnaires for
programs of study, student services, seminars, alumni surveys and more. The integrated
norm and benchmarking options, PDF feedback reports, and quality management views
give you all you need for the implementation of enterprise-wide feedback reporting. Class
Climate's ability to operate with an imaging scanner (including Scantron's new Clarity
Imaging/OMR scanner) allows it to capture comments directly from paper and insert them
into a report.
Break Out VIII: Small Light, Big Tunnel: Matt Smith, Pitt CC
Attendees will be exposed to alternative methods of working with Colleague data and be
