More Student Success: A Systemic Solution
State Higher Education Executive Officers
This book tells how to build a system leading to more student success beginning in elementary school and continuing through high school and postsecondary education. It identifies the key elements, describes effective practices, and shows how they come together to help students and educators succeed. "More Student Success" is an updated and expanded successor to a 2003 State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) publication, "Student Success: Statewide P-16 Systems" (ED478023). The 2003 publication emerged from "case studies" to learn about P-16 practices in five states: California, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, and Rhode Island. Higher education and K-12 leaders from many states, as well as staff from SHEEO, the Pathways to College Project, the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education (WICHE), the Education Commission of the States (ECS), and the College Board, participated in the case studies to ask challenging questions and learn from each other. "More Student Success" has updated the earlier book to reflect progress since 2003, and it includes a new chapter, by George Kuh, on increasing the rate of student achievement in postsecondary education. Following an executive summary by Paul Lingenfelter, the following essays are presented: (1) Early Outreach (Andrea Venezia and Terese Rainwater); (2) Curriculum and Assessment Systems (Sharmila Basu Conger and Christine Tell); (3) High Quality Teaching (Edward Crowe); (4) Student Financial Assistance (David A. Longanecker and Cheryl D. Blanco); (5) Success in College (George D. Kuh); and (6) Data and Accountability Systems (Hans P. L'Orange). (Individual papers contain references.)
