How Are We Doing?
CUNY Start: Analysis of Student Outcomes is a comprehensive evaluation of proficiency gains, matriculation rates, and post-secondary outcomes of CUNY Start students as compared to similar students who enrolled directly in a CUNY degree program. The findings indicate that CUNY Start students are more likely to gain proficiency in all of the basic skills areas (reading, writing, and mathematics) and have stronger persistence, GPA and retention outcomes once they enter a degree program.
Two-page summary of proficiency gains in basic skills areas of reading, writing, and math for students enrolled in CUNY Start between Fall 2009 and Spring 2014. Proficiency gains are broken out by number of developmental needs pre- and post-program and by pass rates in each basic skills area.
