New Student Success Metrics

The Chancellor’s Office initiated an effort this year to integrate and align metrics associated with its many initiatives, including Guided Pathways, Student Equity, and the Vision for Success, to name a few. Some colleges expressed concerns about the growing number of metrics and data reports to track, and they created a workgroup to develop ONE set of metrics that focuses on students and their educational journeys from recruitment to completion. Their goal is ambitious. They want each metric to observe equity, be valid, drillable, measureable, critical, and align with the progression of students along various initiatives.

 

The first iteration of these metrics, referred to as the Student Success Metrics, were just released.

The Chancellor’s Office is encouraging college staff to review this data carefully and send corrections, suggestions, and concerns to research@cccco.edu.

The metrics will be augmented in the future with equitable access reporting and the ability to disaggregate by additional student characteristics.

Pell Grant Recipients

CR received the annual report from the Center for Community College Leadership and Research about Pell Grant Receipt among Community College Students in California. In 2015-16, 20% of all students enrolled in the CCC system received $1.62 billion in Pell Grant aid. Many more students receive the BOG (43% of total enrollment) which, unlike the Pell Grant, is a simple to apply for.

More than 20% of students in the system who appear eligible for Pell Grant aid do not receive it. In fall 2014, over $129 million dollars was left “on the table.” The report indicates that institution-specific policies play a large role in driving differences in take-up rates across campuses. CR’s Financial Aid Office appears to be employing best practices. Only 5 of the 112 colleges in the system had a higher percentage of Pell eligible students receiving the Pell grant.
