Tillamook Bay Community College
Tillamook Bay Community College (TBCC) has already made evaluation a high priority on their agenda. Over the past several years, the college completed an inventory of best practices, conducted several student focused surveys, and has used the results to guide institutional change efforts. Enhanced online services and required orientation are just two of several initiatives that were informed by survey results.
Working with Achieving the Dream and utilizing the knowledge and skills of coaches and data coaches will allow TBCC to strengthen current institutional research work by:
- Utilizing longitudinal data to determine student enrollment and achievement trends over time
- Identifying characteristics that make students more or less likely to persist from term to term and more or less likely to succeed
- Determining the challenges faced by students at TBCC in attaining a degree or credential and using this information to design and implement programs to help them overcome these obstacles
TBCC was established in 1981. In 2010, over 1,200 students were served by the college. Of these students, 540 were credit-seeking, representing an increase of more than 65% since 2008. Females comprised 58% of the student body, and 60% of students attended on a part-time basis. The average age of credit-seeking students was 29, while the average age of non-credit students was 46. In fall of 2011, 69% of full-time students received financial aid.
