STUDENT SUCCESS MEASURES

Student success measures are vital in determining how the College is progressing. Indicators will show if milestones (such as developmental and gateway course success) are being reached, achievement gaps are closing, and students are being retained and subsequently graduated.

Developmental Success Initiatives include programs such as Math Boot Camp and Accelerated Math for Mathematics and the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) for English

After completing (or testing out) of the math and English development series, all students must then also complete the at least one college level math and at least one college level English course, depending on their major. These courses are called gateway courses. Atlantic Cape tracks the gateway completion in both English and math, as shown below.

There is a strong correlation between students who persist (or are retained) the following semester and successful completion of a degree or certificate. Because of this, Atlantic Cape tracks students in both Fall-to-Spring retention and Fall-to-Fall, as shown below.
