Summary

This paper summarizes evaluation data of at-risk student outcomes within the California State University (CSU) System in terms of student retention and academic performance. Findings concerning student retention are presented in the following areas: retention by ethnicity and by admission basis; retention by entering test performance; and the retention rates across cohorts and programs. This is followed by an analysis of student performance in the Intensive Learning Experience (ILE) remedial program and in the orientation program, Summer Bridge; and of student performance on the Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) exam and subsequent enrollment and grades in baccalaureate mathematics courses. Among the key findings are that: (1) passing ELM greatly increased student chances of enrolling in and passing baccalaureate math; (2) retention figures for ILE students were comparable to overall CSU system figures; and (3) many students who fail the ELM exam and retake it go on to pass the exam and eventually succeed in their baccalaureate course.
