Student Services & Learning Model: Delivery, Guiding Principles, Components & Linkages.
Dale, Paul; Lara, Ernie; Murchland, Donna
This report sets forth the rationale and guiding principles for a Student Success Model developed for the Maricopa Community Colleges. It incorporates the following stages: Outreach and Intake; Entry; Experience; and Completion/Assessment. It is recognized that students can and will enter at any stage. Each stage of the model also incorporates process and learning outcomes. The Outreach and Intake stage involves those activities where students have their first contact with the college. During this time a student first previews what the learning experience will be like. This is also the first opportunity for the college to learn about the initial needs of students. The Entry stage assumes a knowledge of entry-level student goals and needs. Components of this stage include assessment, advising, orientation, and registration. This stage prepares the student's formalized education. Learning outcomes in this stage range from decision-making to study skills. The Experience stage creates conditions where students engage in the learning process. A critical intervention in this stage is the identification by instructors and student affairs professionals of students failing to adequately engage in the learning process. The Completion/Assessment stage provides the institution with the opportunity to receive feedback regarding the success of its services and programs of instruction. This report charts the Student Service & Learning Delivery Model and its Components/Linkages. (Contains 10 references.) (VWC)
