I'm Glad You Asked: A Digest of Publications from the BC College and Institute Student Outcomes Survey, 1996-2006
Ministry of Advanced Education
This digest is an overview of a decade's analyses of findings from an annual survey of former post-secondary students in British Columbia (BC). The BC College and Institute Student Outcomes (CISO) project annually surveys almost 18,000 former students from all of BC's public colleges, university colleges, and institutes. Former students are contacted 9 to 20 months after completing all, or a significant portion, of their program and asked to evaluate their educational experience and to talk about their employment, further education, and personal development. The results of the survey are used by the post-secondary institutions to improve programs and services and by the Ministry of Advanced Education (AVED) for post-secondary policy development and accountability. Students, parents, and the general public can view outcomes facts and figures to help them make informed postsecondary education choices. In addition to the annual feedback on individual programs and institutions described above, the CISO project produces thematic, analytical papers and reports that are intended to advance knowledge of how and why certain outcomes are occurring. Almost all CISO publications are described with the key findings from each. Reports are grouped thematically; if topics were examined more than once, the more recent publications are summarized. "The People Behind the Reports" is appended. [This report was co-published by the Outcomes Working Group and BC Stats.]
