Automated Student Follow-up: A University Perspective. AIR 1995 Annual Forum Paper.
Brandt, Dennis M.
An automated student follow-up system developed by a Texas state agency was pilot tested at East Texas State University (ETSU) for the public university system. Students enrolled at ETSU during summer 1991, fall 1991, and spring 1992 who were not enrolled at ETSU during fall 1992 were tracked. The data files were used to determine the present status of the 6,066 former students and included such possibilities as: continuing their education, transferred to another institution, working, or both working and attending school. Information is provided on the type of institution to which students transferred and reasons for leaving. Additional follow-up focused on 58 transfer students to two local community colleges. Tracking of the 2,724 nonreturning graduate level students identified a number of reasons for not returning. Follow-up also was undertaken for graduates who were working full-time and for whom employers confirmed employment, job title, and salary. Information is also provided on average salaries of undergraduates and graduate students for selected majors. Average salaries for male and female Caucasian and African American graduates are also listed. Seven tables present the data. (SW)
