Institutional Effectiveness Data

The quality of Mt. San Antonio College's (Mt. SAC's) work to improve student success is measured in many ways. Sometimes we benchmark our work based on our year-over-year results. Other times we benchmark our work based on comparable colleges' data in California or across the nation. Methods used to measure this work comprise surveys, focus groups, interviews, and secondary data analyses (e.g., internal and external database comparisons).  The scope of our work is focused at all levels - from College-wide to programs and departments. 

The following are examples of some of this work. 

Gathering Student Voices

Career Education Survey (CTEOS)
First Year (CIRP)
Beyond First Semester (CCSSE)
Multiple Measures Placement into English and math (AB 705)

Institution-Set Standards (Accreditation - ACCJC)
