Achieving the Dream Data Team
Data-driven decision-making is key to attaining the AtD project goals. Achieving the Dream colleges will use data on student outcomes to diagnose areas that need improvement, generate the institutional will for change, and assess the impact of the changes on students.

Why don't Fall AtD cohort students re-enroll in Spring?
Durham Tech's Evaluation and Research Services staff contacted non-returning students to learn about their experiences. The study informed development of AtD implementation plan. A similar study is scheduled for Spring 2006.

Achieving the Dream Snapshot
As part of the Achieving the Dream initiative, Durham Tech is tracking entering Fall Semester groups (cohorts) of first-time curriculum students, who are registered either full time or part time. These students are enrolled in a certificate, diploma, or degree program (including developmental, wait list, and preparatory students).

Each cohort will be followed semester by semester for six years to determine key demographic, placement, persistence, and performance data. This information is part of the “culture of evidence” described by Data Facilitator Glenn Gabbard at the Fall 2004 Achieving the Dream Kickoff.
