Student Flow Program: Kapiolani Community College. Report No. l.
Kosaki, Mildred D.
A student flow program has been designed at Kapiolani Community College (KCC) to monitor the progress, persistence, and satisfaction of students entering KCC in Fall 1980, and to compare these findings with the results of a statewide longitudinal study of Fall l975 entering students. The flow program will focus on the students' sex, entry age, marital status, high school background, entry status, enrollment status, educational objectives, program of study, cumulative grade point average, cumulative credit-completion ratio, developmental education, financial aid, and academic status. During the course of the program, 12 types of reports will be prepared based on: (1) applications, admissions, and registrations; (2) characteristics of entering students; (3) student progression each semester; (4) academic persistence; (5) comparison of graduates and non-continuing students; (6) transfers to the University of Hawaii's four-year campuses; and (7) through (12) surveys of students admitted to the college who never enrolled, entering students, continuing students, non-continuing students, alumni, and employers. Additionally, a final summative report will be prepared, and two special studies of developmental studies students and health education applicants will be undertaken. The report is appended by eight survey instruments prepared for the study. (AYC)
