Fall 2009 (vs. Fall 2010) Results: FYE Learning Outcomes Assessment Summary  

 

Most variables showed marked consistency when compared to Fall 2009, with three notable exceptions:

(a) Fall 2010 first-year students spent more time studying than the Fall 2009 cohort. 

(b) Fall 2010 first-year students were significantly more likely to access their degree evaluation (CAPP).

(c.) While Fall 2010 first-year students indicated an increase in FYE course coverage of “participation in the CCSU community”, they were less likely to participate in co-curricular activities (vs. Fall 2009 cohort)
