Guthrie, Lou A.
New Directions for Institutional Research, n169 p61-72 2016
Postgraduation outcomes for community college students are complex. In addition to traditional job placement and earnings information, transferring to a 4-year institution is a positive first-destination outcome. Furthermore, community college students may have education and career goals that do not include earning a degree. Community college measures of success, two case studies, and how community colleges use outcomes data will be discussed.
