Preview I. The Community College Landscape: A Primer & Fact Book Critical Student Transitions The College Board's Interest in Serving Community Colleges Q&A, and Wrap-Up

Slide 3

Our Mission The College Board's central goal is to interface understudies to school achievement and opportunity. We are a not-revenue driven participation association focused on incredibleness and value in training.

Slide 4

Membership Community schools should be at the table with K-12 and four-year establishments The College Board is one of only a handful couple of national associations uniting all training bodies electorate to the table. How would we develop junior college enrollment?

Slide 5

I. The Community College Landscape: A Primer and Fact Book How would we be able to depict viably the degree and profundity of America's junior colleges? Who are the understudies that go to these organizations? How about we do the numbers…

Slide 6

Community Colleges are Geographically Accessible Number of junior colleges: 1,158 This incorporates: 979 open junior colleges 148 private junior colleges 31 tribal junior colleges American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), 2005

Slide 7

Community schools are the minimum costly advanced education foundation Average yearly expenses/educational cost for.. Private four-year foundation: $22,218 Public four-year organization: $5,836 Public people group college: $2,272 The College Board, 2006

Slide 8

Community schools select almost 50% of all understudies in advanced education Total enlistment: 6.6 million understudies Comprise 46% of all advanced education enlistment Comprise 58% of all advanced education enlistment out in the open establishments Between 1993 and 2002, CC enlistment grew 17.6% contrasted with 13% for four-year organizations. AACC, 2005

Slide 9

Community schools draw in understudies from assorted ethnic & racial foundations

Slide 10

Community undergrads are for the most part more established, yet more youthful understudies are enlisting in more prominent numbers Average period of CC understudy: 29 years But 49% of all CC understudies are 24 years or more youthful In the most recent 10 years, the extent of understudies under 22 years has expanded from 32% to 42% of all CC enlistments AACC, 2005; Chronicle of Higher Ed , 2006

Slide 11

Community universities are less fortunate fiscally Nearly half of all low-wage understudies go to a junior college About 10% of all high-wage understudies go to a junior college Kahlenburg, 2004

Slide 12

Community schools pull in more understudies who are original school goers About 45% of all junior college understudies originate from families with no history of school going. For four-year organizations, this extent is around 29% AACC, 2005

Slide 13

Community schools pull in more understudies with particular "hazard variables"

Slide 14

Community universities draw in understudies who require help in essential abilities As numerous as one-portion of all entering junior college understudies must finish no less than one healing course in fundamental English or science

Slide 15

II. Basic Student Transitions: What's Working and so forth… Central Issues Student arrangement for undergrad perseverance and move in understudy fruition Critical Transition Points High school-to-junior college Community school to-four-year establishment

Slide 16

Focus on the rudiments…

Slide 17

High School to Community College Transition What's working? The "additional opportunity" capacity of junior colleges What's Not? The "primary shot" capacity of junior colleges

Slide 18

Factors that Influence Bachelor's Degree Completion Behaviors ("Academic Momentum") Intensity and Quality of HS Curriculum Doing great in that educational modules (upper 40% of class) No deferral between enlistment in secondary school and school Participation in summer sessions Completion of 20 units in first year of school Other Factors SES Educational desires/goals Adelman, 2005, 2006

Slide 19

These same elements are contrarily identified with junior college participation Behaviors (Lack of Academic Momentum) (Low) Intensity of HS Curriculum (Not) Doing admirably in that educational modules (upper 40%) (Delay) between enlistment in secondary school and school (No) Participation in summer sessions (Less than) Completion of 20 units in first year of school Other Variables (Low) SES (Low) Educational desires/yearnings

Slide 20

Second Chances are great, yet… "No issue… Community universities are about renewed opportunities. On the off chance that understudies miss out in secondary school, we can raise to speed when they get to us… " True… yet it is a bet… Can we inspire them to select? Will we persuade them to hold on? Do we have the assets to help them manage this exertion?

Slide 21

… first possibilities are better. Why? Since these understudies may lose "scholastic energy" Nearly 66% provide to CCs requiring medicinal with some timely help Many never entire their instructive objectives Some information propose they've effectively lost force in secondary school… .how about we investigate… .

Slide 22

High school understudy impression of junior colleges… Some understudies don't see the viability of buckling down in secondary school as a method for accomplishing their instructive objectives. This is particularly valid for low-accomplishing understudies (whether school destined or not) This is not "senioritis"

Slide 23

Many low-accomplishing secondary school seniors trust they can acquire a degree (Data from Rosenbaum, 2001)

Slide 24

Students who trust they can win a higher education disregarding low accomplishment, apply little exertion in secondary school HS understudies see school as unessential for their future lives & trust that frail endeavors separates no punishment But exertion in secondary school is firmly identified with whether understudies consider school to be important to their future lives "Exertion variable" intervenes impact of educator, school help, and parental help and is autonomous of an understudies' SES

Slide 25

Long-term affect on undergrads who don't attempt in secondary school Over 83% of understudies with low evaluations who wanted to attend a university and win a BA degree neglect to do as such. More than 92% of understudies with low evaluations who wanted to go school and win an AA degree neglect to do as such. (Rosenbaum, 2001)

Slide 26

But in the event that exertion is so essential, why are a few understudies slacking off in secondary school… .? "… a few young people have misread the American accentuation on circumstance. In spite of the fact that Americans may trust that society ought to give young people… with 'renewed opportunities,' adolescents [believe] that school disappointments never matter and their endeavors are a bit much… these states of mind may legitimize their poor exertion in secondary school. " (Rosenbaum, 2001, p. 64)

Slide 27

Are we sending a blended message? The Paradox of Open Admissions We are interested in all who may to profit, offering unprecedented advanced education get to… … however numerous understudies trust that such get to comes at no cost… Student observations are not by any stretch of the imagination mistaken "… low evaluations are not an obstruction to enlisting in two-year universities. School destined understudies who think secondary school exertion is superfluous to their feasible arrangements are mostly right – secondary school evaluations are not an impediment to enlistment at two-year universities" (Rosenbaum, 2001, p. 65)

Slide 28

How would it be advisable for us to react? Elucidate our Messages High school evaluations are the most imperative indicator of accomplishment (and exertion is the driver) Balancing the "get to" message with the "readiness" message: Community universities have open entryways, however scholastic achievement must be accomplished at a higher (school) level Rekindle scholarly force: Prevent postponement to school, advance summer school, finish proper planning for school.

Slide 29

How would it be advisable for us to react? Give scholastic "registration" Community schools ought to offer scholarly "registration" to secondary school understudies Identify fundamental aptitudes qualities and shortcomings of understudies before junior college section Tools: ACCUPLACER, PSAT Opportunity to adjust educational program, set up pattern criteria, and battle negative picture of the junior college

Slide 30

High School to College Transition Continuing the College Board Success Model for understudies in K-12 gets ready understudies well for junior college achievement Many CC Bound Students Begin Planning for College Here (Late 11 th or 12 Grade) Advanced Placement® (Community) COLLEGE SUCCESS ACCUPLACER "Scholarly Check-Ups" in 12 th Grade Pre-AP ACCUPLACER PSAT/NMSQT ® SAT ® PSSS CollegeEd ® : Information, Empowerment, and Inspiration Springboard ™ : Critical Thinking and Academic Preparedness

Slide 31

The Community College-to-Four-Year College/University Transition What's working? Understudy Satisfaction with Community College Remediation Policies Transfer What's most certainly not? Need to exchange more understudies Need more advocates, arranging apparatuses, proficient improvement Policies that conflict with exchange and degree finish

Slide 32

Community College-to-Four-Year College/University Transition Supporting junior college understudies and advisors gets ready understudies for the move to a four-year school or college . CC Counselor/Educator Resources (e.g., Counselor Sourcebook ) Transfer & BA Degree Success Transition from High School CLEP ® ACCUPLACER ® "Scholastic Check Ups" (12 th Grade) MyRoad ® Student Resources: Information , Inspiration, Preparation

Slide 33

Students are fulfilled Eight in ten understudies rate their junior college encounter as "great" or "magnificent." Seven in ten trust that the junior college gave the bolster they should have been fruitful. Nine in ten understudies would prescribe a junior college to a companion or relative.
