      The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES
      _________________________________________________________________

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our April 13
      issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  ASSESSING ASSESSMENTS: Online programs are using new
         strategies of testing, both to teach students and to prove
         that distance education works, but some educators question
         their efficacy.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a04301.htm

      *  ENDOWMENT GROWTH: In 2000, the rich got richer, and the
         financial gap between the wealthiest institutions and the rest
         of higher education widened. Plus: new data on the endowments
         of 569 colleges and universities, including some two-year
         institutions.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03901.htm

      *  INTERPRETING THE RULES: A dispute between the U.S. Education
         Department and Saint Louis University could change how campus
         officials handle students' financial-aid requests.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a02801.htm

      *  LOBBYIST WATCH: The parent company of the University of
         Phoenix has hired a veteran Republican operative.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a02803.htm

      *  WASHINGTON TRANSITION: A former chancellor of the University
         of Wisconsin at Madison, David Ward, will lead the American
         Council on Education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03001.htm

      *  SYMBOLIC VICTORY: The Senate voted to shift $250-billion from
         President Bush's tax-cut proposal to spending on education,
         including Pell Grants.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03102.htm

      *  TEACHING EXAMS CRITICIZED: A report says lawmakers shouldn't
         rely on teacher-licensure tests for comparing
         teacher-education programs or for withholding funds.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03403.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  IMMIGRANT STUDENTS: Lawmakers in two states have introduced
         legislation to help those applying for citizenship qualify for
         in-state tuition.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03601.htm

      *  FEE PROPOSAL: College lobbyists are objecting to a planned
         charge that the federal government would collect from foreign
         students.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03405.htm

      *  EMPTY SLOTS? Colleges may face a shortage of applicants for
         faculty positions in computer science and computer engineering
         because fewer students are graduating with doctorates in those
         fields.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a04302.htm

      *  ESTATE-TAX BILL ADVANCES: The House of Representatives
         approved legislation that would phase out the federal tax on
         large estates by 2011.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i31/31a03404.htm
