Horizons strives to ensure our program demonstrates measured, actionable outcomes by establishing comprehensive guidelines and goals to strive for. We evaluate the following aspects of our student population, in order to asses the success of our program: Graduation Rates, Persistence Rates, and Grade Point AveragesView Our Most Recent Data
Four, five, and six-year graduation rates are tracked for all Horizons participants. These rates are tracked for the dual purpose of reporting to the Department of Education and as a determination of Horizons’ success. Data is collected on a cohort year basis and is compared to the general student population at Purdue. Typically, Horizons’ students begin college with averaged SAT scores 200 points lower than the average Purdue student. Data on graduation rates is collected through the Office of the Registrar.
The number of students who return for their second, third, and fourth years is measure of persistence and another way to gauge the success of Horizons. The persistence rates of Horizons students is collected by cohort year and compared to the general student population at Purdue. Data on persistence rates is collected through the Office of the Registrar.
Grade Point Averages
Cumulative GPAa are collected at the end of each semester. Although GPA can indicate a measure of student success they are very sensitive to the student’s major, the year the student is in, and high school preparation for college.
