Student Outcomes

Adler Graduate School strives to make our student outcome data accessible and transparent. Student outcomes are a collection of performance indicators and/or statements that clearly state the expected knowledge, skills, attitudes, and competencies that students are expected to acquire at an institution of higher education. We collect and analyze data in three core areas that informs institutional decision-making, improvement planning, problem identification, curriculum planning, goal setting, faculty development, course revision, program review, and accountability.

  1. Student Learning: Student learning outcomes state what students are expected to know or be able to do upon completion of a course or program.
  2. Retention and Graduation: One of the key performance indicators in Adler Graduate School’s institutional effectiveness plan is the tracking of student persistence, retention, and graduation rates in order to identify areas for improvement.

  3. Career Outcomes: When students graduate from AGS they enter into service careers or professional work focused on transforming society through social interest in action. We collect data on employment, service, post graduation licensure, and what students are doing beyond the classroom walls of Adler Graduate School.

Retention and Graduation

The institution collects and analyzes data on these indicators by using IPEDS definitions and methodologies. AGS also tracks graduation rates and post-graduate opportunities for students.
