Dr. Gary Rice and his colleagues have developed a Student Learning Success Model which is designed to address the limitations of the traditional approach to student success metrics. Dr. Rice is keen for researchers and practitioners to review their site, and engage Dr. Rice and his team in discussions about ways this model is better than the traditional student success tracking currently being used.
Since 2008, Mt. Hood Community College has been working as an external beta-test institution for the UAA model. As was discussed at the AACC retreat in Washington, D.C. a few weeks ago, it is clear that we need better tools and models for tracking and intervention in student success.
