Cohort Data Overview

Comparison Groups

CCSSE uses a three-year cohort of participating colleges (2015 through 2017) in all of its data analyses, including the computation of benchmark scores. For returning participants, the college’s most recent year of participation is included in data analyses. This cohort is referred to as the 2017 CCSSE Cohort throughout all reports and documentation. This approach increases the total number of institutions and students contributing to the national data set, which in turn increases the reliability of the overall results. In addition, the three-year cohort approach minimizes the impact, in any given year, of participation by statewide consortia.
