College Report

  • College Indicators

  • College Profile

  • College Peer Groups


College indicators
College Indicators

  • Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

    • Progress and Achievement Rate

    • Percentage of students earning 30 or more units

    • 1st Fall to 2nd Fall Persistence Rate

  • Progress and Achievement: Workforce Development

    • Annual successful course completion rate for vocational courses

  • Pre-Collegiate Improvement

    • Annual successful course completion rate for basic skills courses

    • Basic Skills Improvement Rate

    • ESL Improvement Rate


College indicators1
College Indicators

  • Examine over time

    • Three years of data

    • What are the trends

  • Compare to Peers

    • Gives context

    • Peer colleges are determined for each outcome measure

    • Take into account factors that are out of the college’s control

    • “Level the Playing Field”

    • Some of the adjustment models are better than others (i.e., they account for more variance)


College indicators2
College Indicators

  • Compare to peers (continued)

    • For example:

      • Transfer Rates could be related to:

        • Level of academic preparation of students

        • Distance to nearest UC/CSU

        • Income levels of service areas

        • Percentage of older students

      • Model for SPAR

        • Pct age +25 Fall 2005

        • Pct Basic Skills Students Fall 2005

        • BA Plus Index

Palomar college summary progress and achievement degree certificate transfer
Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

  • SPAR (six year cohort) – Drop in most recent year; below our peer group average in most recent year

  • 30+ units (six year cohort) – Drop over previous year; below our peer group average in most recent year

  • Persistence – Increasing – Close to peer average


Palomar college summary progress and achievement degree certificate transfer1
Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

  • Something not quite right

    • 27 out of 37 in peer group experienced a decrease in their SPAR

    • System transfer rate decreased, system average SPAR decreased

  • Entering cohort (the denominator)

  • Outcome (the numerator)

    • Degrees/Certs – Remained constant/slight increase

    • Transfer Prepared/ Transfer Ready / Transfers – Numbers decreased with the largest decrease in Transfer counts


Palomar college summary progress and achievement degree certificate transfer2
Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

  • A closer look

    • “Internal” SPAR rates are more stable

    • 15% of students in the SPAR cohorts still attending the college after the six year tracking period

    • Over 100 students in most recent SPAR cohort transferred within 6 months of tracking period.

    • In general, students residing in CPPEN zip codes higher percentage achieve an outcome than our population at large

  • Follow up needed

    • CRCC – What role did it play? Why different over time?

    • Other factors
