A Data Audit and Analysis Toolkit To Support Assessment of the First College Year.
This "toolkit" provides a process by which institutions can identify and use information resources to enhance the experiences and outcomes of first-year students. The toolkit contains a "Technical Manual" designed for use by the technical personnel who will be conducting the data audit and associated analyses. Administrators who want more information about the data audit may also be interested in the manual. "The Administrative Rationale" is a booklet designed for administrators who need to know the basic premise and a general overview of the data audit process in order to champion it on campus. A CD-ROM is included. This CD contains the complete Technical Manual and the standard reporting templates for the Data Audit and Analysis. A three-ring binder is part of the kit. This binder contains the manuals and holds the CD-ROM. The templates in the Technical Manual can be easily copied from the binder. A leaflet, "What Is Happening with First Year Students," describes the toolkit and its constituent parts, and outlines kit use. (SLD)
