Leading Metrics for Guided Pathways
The Pathways Model is an integrated, institution-wide approach to student success based on    intentionally designed, clear, coherent and structured educational experiences, informed by      available evidence, that guide each student effectively and efficiently from her/his point of entry though to attainment of high-quality postsecondary credentials and careers with value in the labor market. In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • The dimensions, practices and essential capacities of the pathways model

  • How to operationalize and assess progress implementing guided pathways using the open-source Scale of Adoption Assessment (SOAA) tool

  • Measures of “early momentum” that colleges can use to gauge whether institutional reforms are improving student outcomes and closing equity gaps including credit momentum, gateway momentum and program momentum.

  • Evidence supporting the use of these near-term, leading indicators

  • How to use surveys such as the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) and the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) and qualitative methods for insights on how students are experiencing guided pathways.

This workshop requires pre-registration.
