This webinar will be an encore of a 2018 National Symposium on Student Retention presentation from Starfish and Fayetteville State University.
Evaluating program effectiveness can be a daunting task. From determining which programs to measure, the appropriate data points to capture, and accounting for additional factors that can influence academic outcomes, the path to identifying what works and what doesn’t can often seem out of reach.
In this webinar, Fayetteville State University will share how they prioritized programs for evaluation, tracked participation in those programs, and worked with Starfish by Hobsons to assess those programs using logistic regression, ANCOVA, and propensity score matching. We’ll explore how data analysis can be paired with institutional knowledge to frame thinking around program assessment, and close with a discussion on the implications of Fayetteville’s findings- including insights on the timing of freshmen advising and the variation in program attendance rates among student-athletes.
