WWC SSR20002 WWC Review of the Report "Can Scholarships Alone Help Students Succeed? Lessons from Two New York City Community Colleges"
The 2012 study, Can Scholarships Alone Help Students Succeed? Lessons from Two New York City Community Colleges, examined the effects of performance-based scholarships on 1,502 low-income, independent, adult community college students in New York City who were required to enroll in remedial courses. The students were targeted because of their elevated risk of having financial difficulties in paying for college. The study authors used student transcript data to evaluate the impact of the scholarships on continued community college enrollment, credits earned, and grade-point average. This study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial, and the research meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.
NCES 2013755 Today’s Baccalaureate: The Fields and Courses That 2007–08 Bachelor’s Degree Recipients Studied
This set of Web Tables uses data from the Postsecondary Education Transcript Study (PETS) and the 2008/09 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/09) to provide estimates on the broad fields and specific courses baccalaureate degree holders pursue. The tables first present students’ participation in 37 different fields by sex, race/ethnicity, age, first postsecondary institution sector, bachelor’s degree institution sector, and major. The tables then show the courses most commonly taken by bachelor’s degree recipients at large, bachelor’s degree recipients who began in 2-year colleges, and bachelor’s degree recipients who pursue specific majors. The final two tables report the five STEM courses in which non-STEM majors most frequently earned credits, and the five non-STEM courses in which STEM majors most frequently earned credits.

In addition to reporting student goals, tables display outcomes after 5 years for all three cohorts and after 6 years for students who began in 1995–96 and 2003–04. Results are shown by selected student demographic characteristics and by student enrollment characteristics.

NCES 2009152 On Track to Complete? A Taxonomy of Beginning Community College Students and Their Outcomes 3 Years After Enrolling: 2003-04 through 2006
This study uses a classification scheme, the Community College Taxonomy (CCT), to analyze outcomes for beginning community college students according to how "directed" (strongly directed, moderately directed, or not directed) they are toward completing a program of study. Levels of direction are based on factors associated with student persistence and degree attainment, and outcomes examined included institutional retention, student persistence, 4-year transfer rates, enrollment continuity, and first-year attrition. The study is based on data from the 2004/06 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/06), a national sample of undergraduates who enrolled in postsecondary institutions for the first time between July 1, 2003, and June 30, 2004; participants were interviewed in 2004 and 2006. This study includes only students who initially enrolled in a community college and were not enrolled concurrently in any other institution. Some key findings include:
  • Students classified according to the CCT as "strongly directed" toward completion had higher rates of institutional retention, student persistence, AA degree attainment, and 4-year transfer than did their less-directed peers.
  • Nearly one-fourth left college in their first year and did not return within the 3-year study period. "Strongly directed" students left college in their first year at a lower rate (16 percent) than did their "moderately directed" (29 percent) or "not directed" (41 percent) counterparts.
  • Overall, 49 percent of students had maintained their enrollment or completed a program of study at their first institution, and 55 percent had persisted in any postsecondary institution, within three years after their enrollment.
  • Some 10 percent of students had earned an AA degree, 5 percent had obtained a vocational certificate, and nearly 20 percent had transferred to another institution.
