This information tracks CSM student’s initial enrollment and subsequent success at the various ‘entry points’ for courses in 3 disciplines: English, ESL, and Mathematics. In addition, students who begin at various entry points are tracked across time for eventual completion of subsequent transfer ‘milestone’ coursework in these disciplines. Milestone courses are those satisfying CSU and UC General Education transfer requirements in Mathematics and English Composition. Milestone tracking for English and ESL students is extended, in a separate report, which considers progression beyond ENGL 100 to coursework satisfying the CSU GE and/or IGETC Critical Thinking transfer requirements. Additional transfer milestone tracking for Math students analyzes subsequent enrollment in any coursework above MATH 241. An ethnicity profile of all transfer milestone completers is also presented.
The tracking period of time varies for the disciplines and courses analyzed. This is to allow for sufficient CSM enrollment time to capture eventual student success in sequences of courses that may require several semesters to complete. Student outcomes in English and ESL are tracked Fall 2003 – Fall 2011; Math tracking is Fall 2000 – Spring 2010.
Initial enrollment in the following courses are tracked as noted above:
- ENGL 828, 838, 848, 100
- ESL 400
- MATH 811, 802, 110, 111, 120, 122
- Tracking Student Progression through English, Fall 2003 - Fall 2011
- Tracking Student Progression through ESL, Fall 2003 - Fall 2011
- Tracking Student Progression through Math, Fall 2000 - Spring 2010
