We will briefly review the data-driven approach to Student Success on which the College will embark. A critical component to understanding the trends in your College’s student success data is to determine WHY the students face the challenges or find the support that they do in their efforts to complete a credential. We will discuss the best approach to discover the WHY given the problem at hand (literature reviews, already-collected college data (e.g., CCSSE), surveys, focus groups, structured interviews), with a specific view towards the role of focus group-based data collection. Workshop for Facilitators and IR Staff (Data Team may also find this helpful)
