Staff in the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment presented conference sessions at the annual meeting of the North Carolina Association for Institutional Research in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., in March 2019.
Fath conducted a conference session titled, "Finding Treasure in College Impact Literature." The session reviewed frameworks for understanding student persistence, involvement, and outcomes that included Tinto’s theory of student departure, Astin’s theory of involvement and the input-environment-output model, and Milem and Berger’s modified model of student persistence.
Springer conducted conference sessions titled “Mapping IPEDS to the SACSCOC Standards” and “Not All Treasure is Silver and Gold: A Review of Elon’s 5-Year Interim Report.” Mapping IPEDS to SACSCOC standards identified elements within IPEDS surveys that can be used as evidence in SACSCOC accreditation endeavors. The review of Elon’s five-year interim report provided an overview of the content areas included to support compliance in Elon’s accreditation efforts.
