High, Clennis F.
Online Submission
Student success rates for academic track and workforce track students were examined for thousands of students at a large urban Texas Community College. The study covered fall 2009 through spring 2011, a two year period. Data were collected from the institution's data base regarding students who successfully completed the courses in which they were enrolled. The analyses showed students in workforce programs had significantly higher success rates than their counterparts studying in the academic areas. Further analyses highlighted standard deviation values that indicated, not only were the success rates for workforce students higher, but there was less variability in the success rates of workforce programs than there was for academic programs.
