Student Success from a S.A.S.S.I. Perspective: SBCC Fall 97 Survey Findings with the Self-Assessment for Success Screening Inventory.
Launier, Ray
An increasing percentage of college students are perceived by faculty as underprepared in the basic academic skills, study skills, commitment, and disposition toward learning needed to succeed in college. This report presents background information and findings of a campus-wide survey of Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) students to identify and document the student-centered variables that contribute most to college success. The self-assessment for success screening inventory (SASSI) was administered to a randomly selected sample of 784 SBCC students to establish norms in 19 areas related to student success. The normative and correlational results from this survey indicate that particular student behaviors are significantly associated with student success. The report also notes that the predictive validity of the SASSI is considerably stronger than the college factors success index. Total SASSI score was found to be significantly associated with grade point average. Gender differences and differences related to part-time work and academic division are also noted. A copy of the scale and the interpretive guide are appended. (MKA)
