Smith, Theresa Y.
The Consortium for Student Retention Data Exchange was established in 1994. Its membership increased from 163 colleges and universities in 1994 to more than 400 in 2001. Over the past 8 years, the routine of working with a large and diverse group of institutions has culminated in a valuable collection of experiences and lessons. The 8-year consortium history was documented in a case study of consortium development. The topics included in this paper are: (1) the groundwork; (2) consortium organization; (3) maximizing survey participation; (4) ensuring data quality; (5) compiling data analysis; (6) confidentiality of data; and (7) recommendations on consortium development.
