In an age in which information and data are more readily available than ever, it is critical for higher education institutions to develop tools that can communicate essential information to those who make decisions in an easy-to-understand format. One of the tools available for this purpose is a dashboard, a one- to two-page document that presents…

Leimer, Christina – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Fostering data-driven decision-making is not an easy task, nor is getting busy people's attention in this age of information overload. How we write about and disseminate our findings can help. Writing to the audience, timing, formatting, choice of medium, and connecting results to institutional goals and current, even controversial, issues are…

Saupe, Joe L.; Eimers, Mardy T. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Critics of testing for admission purposes cite the moderate correlations of admissions test scores with success in college. In response, this study applies formulas from classical measurement theory to observed correlations to correct for restricted variances in predictor and success variables. Estimates of the correlations in the population of…

Stratton, Leslie S.; Wetzel, James N. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Socioeconomic status as measured by race, ethnicity, income, and parental education is highly associated with college degree receipt. It is difficult, however, to identify the separate effect of each of these measures given their substantial overlap, and it is difficult to statistically differentiate between the impact of academic…

Harris, Gregory A. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Colleges and universities work hard to create environments that encourage student learning, and they develop grading policies, in part, to motivate their students to perform well. Grades provide two kinds of information about a student's abilities and learned knowledge: "internal" information that informs the students themselves about the…

Johnson, Iryna Y.; Muse, William B. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Back-and-forth enrollment at different institutions--student swirl--and concurrent enrollment at two or more institutions--double-dipping--have become common experiences for students in the United States. However, empirical studies explaining student mobility are rather rare. This study examines how student departures from and returns to a single…

Kramer, Gary L.; Hanson, Coral M.; Olsen, Danny R. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Assessment drives significant change in higher education. Colleges and universities are being asked to (a) publish expected learning outcomes for each of their programs; (b) provide evidence that the expected learning outcomes are realized by students; and (c) demonstrate how such data collection and analyses lead to continuous improvement of…

Priluck, Randi; Wisenblit, Joseph – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
This paper describes two models of assessment of undergraduate business learning in two similar universities located on the East Coast of the United States. Both models stem from seeking continued accreditation by the AACSB and are focused on a group of student skills identified by the faculty as essential to undergraduate business education. The…

Geise, Mary Jo; Knight, William E. – Association for Institutional Research (NJ1), 2011
Dual enrollment programs, once created for the most advanced students, are now seen as a way to provide an accessible and affordable bridge to postsecondary education for a broader range of students. Research on the outcomes of such programs has been limited in scope and exists for only a few states. This quantitative study used Astin's I-E-O…
