This annual component of IPEDS was added in 1997 to help institutions satisfy the requirements of the Student Right-to-Know legislation. Data are collected on the number of students entering the institution as full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students in a particular year (cohort), by race/ethnicity and gender; the number completing their program within 150 percent of normal time to completion; the number that transfer to other institutions if transfer is part of the institution's mission.
|Cohort Year||Six Year Graduation Rate (150%)||IPEDS Reporting Year|
A measure of the rate at which students persist in their educationalprogram at an institution, expressed as a percentage. For four-year institutions, this is the percentage of first-time bachelors (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduates from the previous fall who are again enrolled in the current fall.
|Cohort Year||Retention Rate||IPEDS Reporting Year|
The graphs in the document represent Part 3 of the IDEA Institutional Group Summary Report. Part 3 shows the percentage of classes with ratings at or above the converted score of the IDEA databases. Results are shown for both raw and adjusted scores. When this percentage exceeds 60%, the inference is that the Group’s overall instructional effectiveness was unusually high.
Results in this section address the question: How does the quality of instruction for this Group compare to the national result?
Use of the IDEA Survey at Midland University was implemented in Spring 2012.
Each year the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) asks students at hundreds of colleges and universities to reflect on the time they devote to various learning activities. The topics explored are linked to previous research on student success in college.
Results from NSSE can provide prospective students with insights into how they might learn and develop at a given college. To help in the college exploration process, NSSE developed A Pocket Guide to Choosing a College to give students and their families key questions to ask during campus visits.
