Institutional Effectiveness

The mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness is to collect and distribute data and information related to ASU-Beebe. Institutional Effectiveness (IE) works with student, faculty, program, and personnel data. The primary role of IE is to assist with data-driven decision-making by accurately representing the institution. IE also spends a significant amount of time fulfilling the data requirements of external groups, such as the state legislature and state and federal agencies.

Institutional Effectiveness aims to provide as much meaningful and valuable data as possible in the ASU-Beebe Factbook. If you need data, please browse the Factbook web pages. If the needed data is not included in the Factbook, you may submit a request by clicking the Request Data form.

IE aims to provide consistent, reliable, and accurate data and information to internal and external parties on a timely and regular basis. While making every effort to ensure the accuracy of the data distributed, IE must also guard individual privacy. In most cases, aggregate data that cannot be traced to those from whom it was collected are shared. For official university business, data specific to individuals may be shared, but only within the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines. 

The ASU-Beebe Factbook is a compilation of information about the university provided electronically by the ASU-Beebe Office of Institutional Effectiveness. This electronic Factbook is dynamic and updated frequently to reflect the latest information about the university, as well as to provide a historical perspective of ASUB.

Fast Facts - Student Outcomes: ASU-Beebe's Fast Facts include recent data for enrollment, retention, transfers, degrees awarded, and student satisfaction.

Demographics: Student Enrollment in credit courses at ASU-Beebe can be broken down by various demographics. Institutional Effectiveness provides a breakdown of census enrollment for both fall and spring semesters by campus, race/ethnicity, age, gender, enrollment status, student level, degree intent, attendance status, and cohort size.

Enrollment: Institutional Effectiveness is often asked for data on ASU-Beebe enrollment in credit courses. The links below provide different views of that enrollment. To determine which enrollment view best suits your needs, please review the information below. Most reports list an unduplicated student headcount as well as the SSCH (Student Semester Credit Hours). FTE (full-time equivalency) is calculated by dividing the SSCH by 15 (or dividing by 30 for an annual report).

Retention: As a two-year college, ASU-Beebe offers associate degrees, technical certificates, and certificates of proficiency. Student retention is, of course, very important at ASUB, but with the multiple levels of degree and certificate attainment available to students, it make sense to focus on ways to decrease student attrition rather than simply increase student retention. Student attrition is defined as the reduction of numbers of students attending courses over time. In other words, student attrition focuses on the number of student dropouts. At ASU-Beebe, the student attrition rate is the percentage of students who did not either graduate or return for a future semester. The percentage of students who did graduate or return are often referred to as the "success rate." To determine the success rate, simply subtract the attrition rate from 100. The goal at ASUB is to have a low attrition rate and a high success rate, indicating that a high percentage of students are either completing a degree or certificate or are continuing to work on their academic program at ASUB.

Fall-to-Spring Attrition Rates--The percentage of students enrolled in a particular fall who did not either graduate or return for the following spring semester. This is also referred to as the 1 Semester Attrition Rate.
