MyExpectations

“I think you should be more explicit here in step 2.”


The Take-Aways

?


The Take-Aways

Aggregation - making it meaningful

Dis-Aggregation - making it useful

Triangulation - making it defensible


Let’s start with a simple example

First, I start with my question:


What’s up with the beer aisle in Lowe’s??


Follow-on Questions:

* What about NC breweries?

* What about ENC breweries?


A little closer to home…

What’s up with retention at CCC?

Females?

Took ACA?

Males?

Minorities?

Non-Traditional?

Fall-to-Fall?

Nursing?

Cosmetology?

Fall-to-Spring?

Used AS?

DL?

Applied?

Transfer?

GOT?


A little closer to home…

What’s up with DL at CCC?

Do DL students drop as much as traditional/seated students?

Related but separate question: Do DL students succeed as much as traditional/seated students?

If NO, then what’s going on?


DL @ CCCFA’08

  • 270 seated sections

    • 73% success / 22% failed or withdrew (15% W)

  • 61 internet sections

    • 65% success / 33% D, F, WD (16% W)

  • 15 hybrid sections

    • 81% success / 18% D, F, WD (9% W)


Grade Distributions

(Fall 2008)

Aggregation


Dis-Aggregation

Computer Literacy - FA ‘08

5 Sections: CIS 110 3-WB; 2-IN

  • Attrition

    • IN01: 35%

    • IN02: 26%

    • WB03: 17%

    • WB04: 28%

    • WB05N: 18%


Dis-Aggregation

Computer Literacy - FA ‘08

5 Sections: CIS 110 3-WB; 2-IN


More Dis-Aggregation


Dis -Aggregation

Students in CIS110 - IN02 taking multiple courses


Dis -Aggregation

Students in CIS110 - IN02 taking multiple courses


Now, what about Triangulation?

Historical Data

  • FA 08 internet: 61 sections

    • 33% D, F, WD (16% W)

  • FA 07 internet: 59 sections; 34% D, F, W

  • FA 06 internet: 48 sections; 34% D, F, W


Now, what about Triangulation?

Historical Data

  • FA 08 internet: 61 sections; 33% D, F, WD (16% W)

  • FA 07 internet: 59 sections; 34% D, F, W

  • FA 06 internet: 48 sections; 34% D, F, W

  • FA 08 hybrid: 15 sections; 18 % D, F, W

  • FA 07 hybrid: 22 sections; 16% D, F, W

  • FA 06 hybrid: 20 sections: 27% D, F, W


Now, what about Triangulation?

Nothing wrong with Qualitative Data-

Surveys, Evaluations, Focus Groups

What do you think about online courses?

Where have you succeeded with online?

Where have you struggled online courses?

Where have you succeeded with this course?

Do you prefer Hybrid or Full Internet?


  • Rate these assignments from easiest (1) to most difficult (5).

    • _ Word

    • _ Excel

    • _ Powerpoint

    • _ Access

    • _ Integration

    • _ Theory


In Sum…

  • Think about your question(s)…Outcomes?

  • Where’s the data?

  • How can you aggregate it for meaning?

  • How can you dis-aggregate it for usefulness?

  • How can you triangulate it for validity?


The Important Stuff

Was this what you expected?

Suggestions for improvement?

Would you attend follow-up sessions (on drilling deeper)…(or something else)?
