Author(s):Community College Survey of Student Engagement
Title:Engaging students, challenging the odds
Organization:Community College Survey of Student Engagement
Short Description:The 2005 CCSSE data show that when there are differences in engagement between low- and high-risk students, the students typically described as high-risk are more engaged in their college experience than their peers. However, many of these students have lower aspirations and have less successful outcomes in terms of lower grades and lower persistence rates.
Annotation:The 2005 CCSSE data show that when there are differences in engagement between low- and high-risk students, the students typically described as high-risk — including academically underprepared students, students of color, first generation students, and non-traditional age learners — are more engaged in their college experience than their peers. However, many of these students have lower aspirations and — especially in the case of academically underprepared students, students of color, and low-income students — have less successful outcomes in terms of lower grades and lower persistence rates. In other words, they are working harder, but achieving lower results.
