Cohort analysis of persistence from fall semester to fall semester

Methodology

1) IPEDS
Numerator:
4 Year Institutions
Numerator: Number of first-time bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree-seeking undergraduates from the previous fall who are again enrolled in the current fall.

Denominator: Number of first-time bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree seeking undergraduates in fall of cohort year.

2 Year Institutions:
Numerator: Number of first-time degree-seeking undergraduates from the previous fall who are again enrolled in the current fall or completed their program by the current fall

Denominator: Number of first-time bachelor’s (or equivalent) degree seeking undergraduates in fall of cohort year.

Disaggregation: Institutional Sector, Full/Part Time status

2) EMSAS
Numerator: Number of first-time degree seeking undergraduate students in Missouri public institutions who completed a program or re-enrolled at any public Missouri institution the following fall.

Denominator: Total number of first-time degree seeking undergraduate students in Missouri public institutions in fall cohort.

Disaggregation: Institutional Sector, Gender, Race/Ethnicity, Full/Part time status

Definitions

Degree/Certificate-seeking student
First Time Student
Full-Time Student
Institutional Sector
Part-time student
Undergraduate

Sources:

EMSAS, IPEDS

Limitations and Issues:

IPEDS data would enable inclusion of independent sector, and enable benchmarks to include cross-state comparisons. EMSAS data would be limited to public Missouri institutions, but could account for transfer within that sector. Both methods could potentially be reported as available for comparison.
