Tracking student success at the aggregate level is nothing new; however, when it comes to keeping track of the sub-populations and the individuals who make up those aggregate numbers, it is often left up to ad hoc requests. OIRA demonstrates how we use visual analytics to solve the problem of static reports.
MI School Data and the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) continue to expand its postsecondary reporting exploring entrance and successful exit points with the upcoming CTE Student Pathways, College Enrollment Destination and recently released Success Rates for Michigan’s public community colleges and universities. The first half of the presentation will provide a quick overview of what’s new for postsecondary on MI School Data and then spend the majority of our time discussing the report creation process, methodology, supporting data collections, and lessons learned from the Postsecondary Success Rates released earlier in July 2016. The second half of the presentation will feature a Q&A session meant to clarify any details from the preceding presentation and to encourage collaborative discussion for moving forward.
We present a follow up to a session by Roe/Meier on how to report retention and graduation rates by program. In implementing the solution, the need for an efficient way to present the data became apparent. An Excel dashboard was developed using information from a pre-conference workshop by Rueben Ternes.
Negative program evaluation outcomes often lead to skepticism of the analyses. This skepticism typically comes in the form of grasping at alternative explanations for the negative outcome by suggesting confounding variables. We show how propensity score matching on confounding variables leads to a better understanding of program evaluation analyses.
