Core Student Update - Report from the Core Student Group on results of the data from the cohort group included: group was narrowed to more targeted group of students, they looked at the demographics, identified characteristics, shared with the Academic Senate, All Deans, College Council and at the National Conference for ACCCA. Met with Newell to determine what to focus on for students; contact to take the assessment tests, contact students applying for Financial Aid about completing paperwork, contact students about taking Counseling 200. There are some problems using Degree Works that need to be addressed and it may not work in large classes. Other areas being reviewed are students having an Education Plan by the end of the first quarter, the effectiveness of workshops in Math, the "Getting Started Workshop" and a model for Veterans.
It was suggested the data from the cohort group be made available to enrollment management to help identify courses needed. Information will be provided to Cook for discussion with Espinosa-Pieb. There was also a suggestion to present this information to the Board of Trustees.
