Defining and Measuring Student Success to Promote Equity and Address Individual Success
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Date: Thursday, May 11th, 2023
What data tools are available to measure student success? Faculty work to develop student learning while preparing them for their individual goals be it transfer, career advancement, academic preparation, or personal enrichment. Student equity is central to and deeply intertwined with our focus on student success, and faculty are interested in ensuring our curriculum and student supports are meeting those equity-focused goals. Funding and statewide initiatives drive the metrics (e.g. throughput. transfer rates, etc...) that our system and many of our colleges prioritize, but often these metrics are considered in aggregate where the focus on individual students can be lost. Join the ASCCC Data and Research Committee for a discussion of how faculty define student success and share how to lay the foundations for designing good qualitative studies to contextualize quantitative data.
