The RP Group and Peter Riley Bahr, PhD. In 2010, Peter Riley Bahr, PhD, conducted a cluster analysis for the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office that examined the course-taking behavior of first-time students over an eight-year period. The research revealed a number of interesting issues, including under-reporting successes that do not result in “completion” (meaning transfer, an associate's degree or certificate), equity gaps in students pursuing completion outcomes, and the high volume of units attempted by students pursuing a completion goal.
