Haley Folsom, LVN Transition graduate, recently won an Apple iPad Mini from Blinn College’s Applied Sciences Division after completing her graduate survey and automatically entering a drawing. The survey provides important data that is vital to program and curriculum improvement. This approach has proven successful as the Applied Sciences Division was designated by the Texas Workforce Investment Council (TWIC) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) as one of the two promising practice models in the state. The TWIC said Blinn’s system is valuable “in evaluating employer satisfaction with graduates from Texas community and technical colleges and in the use of satisfaction data to improve institutional and student performance.”
