Resources

Annual College Progress

  • The Annual Reflection Report process provides a structured way for institutions in the ATD Network to assess their student success work over the past year and to plan for the coming year. It guides assessment of system changes, progress with integration of multiple reform efforts that may be operating on the campus, and student-centric solutions aimed at improving student outcomes. Collecting this important information from our Network will enable us to distill key themes, lessons, and trends that will inform work among colleges, coaches, and staff.

    View the May 14 recording of the informational webinar to learn about the 2019 Annual Reflection process and walk through on how to access and submit reporting material. You may access the accompanying slides here.

     

     

Communications Materials

Data Collection and Reporting Transition

  • The annual reporting and reflection process provides a structured way for institutions in the ATD Network to assess their student success work over the past year and to plan for the coming year. It guides assessment of system changes, progress with integration of multiple reform efforts that may be operating on the campus, and student-centric solutions aimed at improving student outcomes. Achieving the Dream’s approach to this year’s reporting and reflection process is designed to shift from a practice of compliance to a practice of assessment and a look at future needs. Collecting this important information from our Network will enable us to distill key themes, lessons, and trends that will inform work among colleges, coaches, and staff.  View the instructions in the file below.

Data Discovery

  • Holistic Student Supports Discovery Inventory 

    The Discovery Inventory is a collaborative exercise to foster open discussion at your institution. It could help the guiding team to:

    • Examine the current design of the student experience, from intake to advising and sustained support through the transition to the workforce or continuing further college education;
    • Identify and address critical pain points; 
    • Explore additional data and ideas for addressing these pain points. 

    This inventory enables examination of the current support approach and those of its major structural, process, and cultural components.
