Students Entering and Leaving the Academic Pipeline @ Mission College Fall 2007 cohort Academic years of study: 2007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-2010, and 2010-2011

Academic pipeline, as depicted in next page, represents four (4) momentum points along the pathway for a degree-seeking student at Mission College. Four momentum points of the academic pipeline:

Momentum point 1:

Momentum point 2:

Momentum point 3:

Momentum point 4:

Attempted and completed any unit in the first semester Attempted and successful completed all developmental courses (college-prep) Attempted and successful completed English 101 and Math 125 (college- ready) Completed more than 60 units Academic success

The first step of the pipeline is to determine the level of readiness of students who are first time in college (FTIC) by reading the results of the placement test. First time in college students may enter to Mission college at the two different levels:

- College-ready level students are students who were placed in English 28 or English 101 and Math 125.

- College preparatory level students are students were advised to take the developmental courses either in English, Math, or both before becoming college ready students.

Once in the pipeline a student has successive momentum points they pass through or they exit the college and leak” from the pipeline. The rate of leakage at each momentum point are indicators of college performance that trigger the college be more responsive in contributing to student success than simply monitoring retention and success rates or graduation rate. The final step of the pipeline is academic success. Students are deemed “academic successful” if they 1) earned award, 2) transferred to 4-yr institution, or 3) still enrolled.

Analysis Questions:

1. How much does the leakage rate at each point in the pipeline have to be reduced to achieve the academic success?

2. What are the underlying factors or challenges that cause the leakage at each point?

3. What are the commonalities in the underlying factors are multiple points in the pipeline?

4. Are there any initiatives that would address the underlying factors at multiple points? If so, these could be thought of as systematic change initiatives.

5. What other types of initiatives would be needed to address the remaining underlying factors at individual leakage points?

6. How can the initiatives reinforce and leverage each other to increase the level of systematic institutional change and improvement?

7. To what extent do the initiatives address teaching and learning in the classroom?

8. Can the initiatives also be designed to accelerate the rate at which students move through the pipeline?

9. To what extent will the initiatives, when taken to scale, produce the desired completion rate?
