Student Flow Analysis for a Community College
Willett, Terrence; Hom, Willard
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v15 n1 p17-27 Fall 2007
The authors describe an innovative technique for using Classification and Regression Tree (CART) with student characteristics, including geographical data for analyzing student enrollment patterns between students who enroll within a community college district (stayers) and those who enroll outside the district (movers) at neighboring community colleges. This article describes a method for conducting a student flow analysis and demonstrates the method with an actual analysis at Gavilan College in Gilroy, California. This is a useful tool for research and planning professionals involved in enrollment management and marketing for community colleges at the program or discipline level. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
