Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count for this issue of "Data Notes," we examine the relationships between course attempts, completions, and attainment - and found results that countered our expectations. The analysis examines the number of credits attempted and completed for the 2002 Achieving the Dream cohort's first academic year as it relates to their persistence and credential completion through the third academic year. These findings underline the importance of using detailed analysis and results, rather than general theories, to guide institutional change. (Contains 8 footnotes and 5 figures.)
