Student Flow Project: Update 1. Student Flow Project, Report No. 8.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
The Student Flow Project of the Hawaii community colleges in an ongoing longitudinal study designed to study how students progress through the community college system. It complements enrollment data by providing information on noncontinuing students. This update proposes a framework for data gathering and analysis of the fall 1975 entering group over a two year period, and for the remaining reports on the fall 1974 entering students. In general, the Student Flow Project consists of three basic components: (1) admissions, which deals with the characteristics of entering students, classifying them as applicants, admittees, registrants, and "no shows"; (2) enrollment, which provides data on students who continue to enroll in the same community college for five semesters after entry; and (3) exit, which provides data on students for each of five semesters who leave the community college either as noncontinuing students or graduates. This document outlines the activities which will be necessary to complete the project, and provides a timetable of proposed activities for 1976-77 and 1977-78. Sample drafts of four survey instruments that must be administered are appended, along with a flow chart of activities. The merger of the Student Flow Project with the institutional research reports on students is planned for the near future. (NHM)
