Retention statistics 1
Retention Statistics 1

STATISTIC

Question it seeks to answer

Takes into account quarter?

Example

Value Labels

fallstat

Do students return in the fall quarter?

No, Based on cohort (or academic year of entry)

If cohort = 2006, then “still active” status for first year = enrolled in Fall of 2007.

  • Graduated

  • Still active

  • Inactive Pass

  • Inactive Not Pass

Onestat

(twostat,

threstat, fourstat, fivestat, sixstat)

Do students return at any time in the following year?

No, Based on cohort (or academic year of entry)

If cohort = 2005, then “still active” status for second year = enrolled in any quarter of 2007-08 academic year (including summer terms).

  • Graduated

  • Still active

  • Inactive Pass

  • Inactive Not Pass

Retention statistics 2

STATISTIC

Question it seeks to answer

Takes into account quarter?

Example

Value Labels

newstat

What is the student’s activity throughout the next year?

Yes, to determine what ‘hours’ determine fall, winter, spring, and summer enrollments.

If cohort = 2005 & quarter = 3 (spring), then “full attend” status for second year = enrolled in fall, winter, AND spring of 2006-07 academic year.

  • Graduated

  • Full Attend

  • Fall Stopout

  • Fall Winter Stopout

  • Fall Spring Stopout

  • Winter Stopout

  • Winter Spring Stopout

  • Spring Stopout

  • Inactive Pass

  • Inactive Not Pass

r_stat

What is the student’s general activity within the next year

Yes and no. This statistics is created from the above statistics by collapsing categories from above.

If newstat = fall stopout, or winter stopout…., then r_stat = ‘stopout’

  • Graduated

  • Full Attend

  • Stopout

  • Inactive Pass

  • Inactive Not Pass
