Quality Assurance Impact Research

ANALYZING ONLINE STUDENT SUCCESS

The CSU Student Quality Assurance Impact Research (SQuAIR) project strives to determine the impact of QA professional development and course certification on teaching performance and student success in CSU online courses. It is hypothesized that instructors who complete QA professional development and obtain course certification are better able to design and deliver online courses, more effectively engaging students and resulting in higher grades, improved course completion rates, higher student satisfaction, and ultimately a reduction in equity gaps.  SQuAI2019-08-29_11-49-10R Overview slides.

SQUAIR PROJECT 2019-20

Fifteen CSU campuses are participating in monthly online SQuAIR meetings toward determining the impact of QA professional development and course certification on teaching performance and student success in courses. The group meets on the second Tuesdays of each month.

TYPES OF DATA from PARTICIPATING COURSES

QA workshops completed by instructor; Whether the course has been formally reviewed and certified; Student demographics; Course GPA; Course completion rates (C- or above); Course grades distribution; Student Feedback Survey data; Faculty Perception Survey.
