STUDENT SUCCESS KIT

by

Dr. David A. George


STUDENT SUCCESS KIT (SSK) INTRODUCTION

  • Purpose: Increase academic success of students.

  • What is it: System of self-administered assessments (tools) covering a range of academic and personal issues.

  • Support: Exercises, techniques, information and follow-up procedures.


ASSUMPTIONS

  • Reasons for student success vary.

  • Needs should be met before expectations can be fully realized.

  • If we don’t meet them, who will?

  • Instructors are an important part of process.

  • There is adequate time in and out of classroom to handle the process.

  • There are additional resources at COD to work with this SSK system.


ANTICIPATED OUTCOMESFROM FULL AND SUCCESSFUL USE OF THE STUDENT SUCCESS KIT PROCESS

  • Improved student success - higher level of performance in academic/personal areas.

  • More effective learning/teaching environment – students will know that they can get needed assistance and faculty will be able to teach to a higher level of performance expectations.

  • More effective utilization of Student Services resources - increased referrals for appropriate student problems/issues.

SSK Potential tools (cont.)


STUDENT SUCCESS KIT

  • Tool Kits fall under 5 main categories:

    • STUDY AND THINKING SKILLS

      • Learning, Memory, Study Skills, & Critical Thinking

    • RESOURCE NEEDS


Instructions

  • Use the following values of a 5 point scale to score each of

    the 8 questions per category on the questionnaire:

    • - The statement is always or almost always true for you (around 100%)

      4 - The statement is often true for you

      (around 75%)

    • - The statement is sometimes true for you

      (around 50%)

    • - The statement is seldom true for you

      (around 25%)

      1- The statement is never or almost never true for you (around 0%)

      Answer each question as honestly as you can.


Instructions (cont.)

  • When you have answered all 8 questions for all 18 tools,

    add the points for each tool and mark the score on the

    Total Score line.

    (Note: the highest possible score for each tool is 40.)

  • Transfer the totals to the Student Success Profile Sheet.

  • Connect the scores with a line from tool to tool.
