Academy of College Excellence Longitudinal Research Study

Timeline: 2016-2017

 

Longitudinal research study of the long-term impacts of the Academy for College Excellence (ACE) on students’ academic and employment outcomes.


Overview

The RP Group is engaged in a longitudinal research study of the long-term impacts of the Academy for College Excellence (ACE) on students’ academic and employment outcomes, designed to understand:

  • Whether students were taught and remember the personal success skills that are part of the program’s curriculum

  • How these personal success skills influence participating students’ completion and employability.

To provide context for these results, the RP Group is comparing ACE participant outcomes to those of a demographically-matched, non-participating peer group. We will also interview a sampling of former ACE students’ work supervisors to learn how ACE students compare to other employees in terms of their preparation and performance.

As a result of investigating the long-term academic and employment outcomes of ACE students and comparing their outcomes to comparable students, ACE administrators will better understand the long-term impacts on student success in order to ensure that colleges are aware of the ACE program and what it offers to students over time.
