Data Nuggets 2018
Are more COM students transferring to four-year institutions in less time? To find out, Planning, Research, and Institutional Effectiveness (PRIE) used data from the National Student Clearinghouse to track College of Marin (COM) first-time freshman cohorts starting from the 2009-10 academic year. The analysis included students who completed at least 12 units at COM, then transferred to a four-year institution.
COM is now using eLumen software to collect, store and report on student learning outcomes, curriculum review and program review. PRIE is providing data on enrollment, student persistence, course completion and course success by program and for the college overall for each discipline’s program review. PRIE is uploading these data into eLumen for direct faculty access to their discipline’s data. These data are also disaggregated by race/ethnicity, gender, age group, and campus/DE.
Looking at COM’s performance on its institution-set standards over the past three academic years, the data show clear improvement on the number of students transferring to UC and CSU campuses, and fall-to-spring persistence of our first-time students.
College of Marin (COM) reports a set of metrics to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) every year.
One of COM’s strategic plan goals for student success is to decrease the amount of time it takes students to earn a degree.
One of COM’s strategic planning goals is to increase philanthropic support to address unfunded needs in the form of scholarships, endowments, academic student support programs and facilities within three years.
College of Marin is moving away from placing students in math and English courses based only on a standardized test.
