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. SQuAIR Overview slides.
SQUAIR PROJECT 2020-21
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 11am-12pm.
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. See Data Reporting Template /Coding Sheet and SQuAIR Project Description and Protocol doc , IRB Samples for further details.
