University of Colorado at Boulder Relationship of CCHE admissions index to student outcomes at CU- Boulder Lou McClelland CU-Boulder Planning, Budget, and Analysis June 2006 L:/ir/cche/adm/IndexCkIR@colorado.edu
University of Colorado at Boulder The index predicts outcomes at CU- Boulder The higher the index The higher the 6-year graduation rate The higher the 4-year graduation rate The higher the one-year retention rate The faster students graduate For CU-Boulder full-time first-time freshmen entering fall 1997, ’98, ’99 All analyses use the “old” index calculation – Before the Oct 2003 revisions
University of Colorado at Boulder The basic relationships are also true for subgroups of these freshmen The same relationships hold for Colorado residents and out-of-state freshmen Male and female freshmen Minority freshmen African-American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American freshmen combined
University of Colorado at Boulder The following plots demonstrate the relationship Each plot shows A different outcome measure For the 12,919 entering freshmen divided into deciles on index Outcome measures plotted 6- and 4-year graduation rates Retention to second fall Average number of elapsed terms to graduation
University of Colorado at Boulder The plots show that the relationships hold for all subgroups Black dots show results for all freshmen Blue: Residents and Non-residents Red: Males and Females Green: Minority and BHN – Black-Hispanic- Native American Each point plotted is based on at least 40 entering freshmen; 90% are based on 100 or more freshmen
The index predicts outcomes at CU- Boulder Index also predicts first-year GPA’s at CU-Boulder Within CU-Boulder, HS GPA is by far the strongest single predictor of outcomes. Test scores only add a small bit of predictive power Past CCHE work says that the index predicts outcomes within and across other schools as well L:/ir/cche/adm/IndexCkIR@colorado.edu
