1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A proven model for screening prospective residence hall assistants (RAs), training them in critical interpersonal and leadership skills, selecting the best candidates, and giving them strong supervisory support on the job is presented in this comprehensive guide. After an introductory chapter on the historical context within which RAs operate residence halls and the modern program's purposes and goals, chapter 2 outlines several problems and issues in ra selection. A recommended selection and training program that evolved from detailed student feedback is described. Chapters 3-7 give the theories and concepts necessary for providing resident assistants with effective leadership. It is suggested that prospective instructors should know the basics of student development and how to apply the knowledge. They should be familiar with student development and residential theory, the impact of residence halls on students' personal and academic development, interpersonal skills theory, and leadership development theory and practice. Chapter 8 focuses on how to teach the training program, and chapter 9 presents the actual training program, including the rationale, goals, and methodology for each of the 20 sessions. After an extensive experience-based elaboration of the evaluation and problems in a training model in chapter 10, chapter 11 is devoted to the issues of supervising resident assistants. The need for supervision once the training program is completed--to assure a program's effectiveness--is noted. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author/LC)

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Colleges and universities have come under increasing pressure from various constituencies to demonstrate their effectiveness in measurable terms and to justify their existence in an era of declining resources. A critical element in meeting these demands is a systematic and comprehensive approach to assessment, which demonstrates the effectiveness of student affairs services, programs, and facilities. This publication gives readers the context within which to view assessment, along with some practical tools for developing selected instruments. Part One leads off with two chapters that summarize an approach to assessment and provide the steps in the assessment process. Part Two explores qualitative assessment methodologies, and includes a chapter on how to conduct focus groups. It also discusses quantitative methodologies, and compares locally developed and commercially developed quantitative instruments. It provides information on data collection and analysis; and includes a discussion on mailed questionnaires, telephone surveys, and Web-based surveys. Part Three delves into more specifics including assessing needs; satisfaction; outcomes; environments; cost effectiveness; and accreditation. It also covers several specialized assessment studies, including assessment dropouts, alumni, and group educational programs. Part Four focuses on assessing selected student services and programs such as first-year programs; recreation programs; financial aid; admissions; residence life; college unions; health services; career services; counseling services; judicial affairs; and Greek life. Part Five considers additional assessment issues, including getting started; arranging for consultants; ethical issues; and strategies for implementing an assessment program. The Resources section is an annotated bibliography of assessment instruments. (Contains 4 appendixes, 62 exhibits, 3 tables, and 281 references.) (Jdm)
