1 Which Path? A Roadmap to a Student s Best College National College Access Network National Conference Mary Nguyen Barry September 16, 2014

2 THE EDUCATION TRUST WHO WE ARE The Education Trust works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, prekindergarten through college, and forever closing the achievement gaps that separate low-income students and students of color from other youth. Our basic tenet is this All children will learn at high levels when they are taught to high levels. WHAT WE DO Advocacy to help schools, colleges, and communities mount campaigns to close gaps Research and policy analysis on patterns and practices that both cause and close gaps Technical assistance to schools, colleges, and community-based organizations to raise student achievement and close gaps

12 Start With The End In Mind - On Time Graduation! Goals 1. College is essential. But you must start with the end in mind. 2. College selection matters, given the stratification of our higher education system. 3. The Education Trust s College Decision Roadmap and College Results Online can guide students in their college search and selection process to find the best fit college.

13 Overview 1. Highlight national trends in college access and completion. 2. Demonstrate how the College Decision Roadmap can help students research colleges on College Results Online (CRO), to identify the best and worst colleges for college access and success. 3. Provide a hands-on opportunity to practice using CRO and the College Decision Roadmap to guide students in their college search and selection process.

72 How Can School Counselors Use CRO with Students? Use CRO to discover trends that can be included in career reports/portfolios Graduation rates of colleges your students typically attend Potential alternative institutions with higher graduation rates Use CRO when guiding individual students and parents, while also teaching them how to use the tool Encourage students to use CRO data in a college application essay colleges will definitely take a second look!

73 How Can Teachers Use CRO with Students? Math CRO great for graphing and other math problems English CRO great for persuasive argument assignment

74 How Can Advocates Use CRO? Ask college reps Data on remedial course enrollment Effectiveness of remediation courses Data on student support programs Collaborate with other area high schools Use data to express concern to Dean of Admissions If possible compare to data from other local colleges Start recommending other colleges for students

75 CRO Counseling Exercise: How would you use CRO and the Roadmap to advise a student? Hypothetical example of a Maryland student Use CRO data to advise the student There s no right answer! 75

76 CRO Counseling Exercise: How would you use CRO to advise a student? Consider Jamal: African American male Qualifies for free lunch Top 10% of high school class, on track to receive honors diploma SAT score is 1320 (690 math and 630 verbal) Wants a traditional, residential college experience Initial inclination: Cousin attended Bowie State, maybe attend there as well Wants to stay close to home to help mother on weekends. 76

77 CRO Counseling Exercise What kind of information can you use to help Jamal think carefully about his decision? Based on the CRO handouts, do you think Bowie is the best choice for him? Where can he afford to go? Would there be a better college for him? What would you recommend to Jamal? 77
