Assessment of Student Outcomes

Outcome A Advising: Adult Student Success

Adult undergraduate students have the necessary tools to be successful at GVSU
Objective 1 prepare students to start accelerated cohorts.

Measure 1

2019 Status
Not Yet Achieved
Like last year, many cohort members have a long commute to campus, and again, orientation participation was below our target and threshold.

2018 Status
Not Yet Achieved
A smaller percentage of students attended orientation this year compared to last year.

2017 Status
Not Yet Achieved
This year we met the threshold, but not target, but we showed improvement from our baseline participation of 75%.

Measure 2

2019 Status
Achieved
Exceeding the target for three years indicates that the content provided in orientation is appropriate for helping students feel prepared to start classes.

2018 Status
Achieved
Some minor orietnation content changes were made, and results on percieved value are consistent with last year's reporting.

2017 Status
Achieved
We met our target for feelings of preparation and increased survey participation.

Objective 2 share relevant information to all undergraduate adult reentry students

Measure 1

2019 Status
Achieved
The email was sent out once this year and had a 55% open rate. Of those that opened it, 9% clicked on the information provided.

2018 Status
Achieved
After integrating the use of best practices in email communications, the open rate increased.

2017 Status
Not Yet Achieved
2017 was a baseline establishing year. With a total of two mailings that went to all adult reentry undergraduate students, there was a 24% open rate.

Measure 2

2019 Status
Not Yet Achieved
After several years of missing our threshold/target, we have determined that a reentry welcome survey is an ineffective way to measure if students have found the information valuable.

2018 Status
Not Yet Achieved
Just as in the last reporting, zero students completed the survey

2017 Status
Not Yet Achieved
A survey went out to all adult undergraduate reentry students who had received a welcome email. Zero students completed the survey.
