From the inception of Social-Belonging for College Students in 2017-2018 through the 2021-2022 school year, PERTS offered high-quality, informative data reports following participation, free of charge. While we were proud to provide this information to schools, beginning in 2022-2023, we no longer provide custom reports for Social-Belonging for College Students.
We’re pleased to share that since the inception of Social-Belonging for College Students in 2017, we have seen overwhelming evidence that participation shows robust and remarkably consistent impacts on students’ mindsets in nearly 100% of schools with meaningful participation (at least 30 students).
Schools interested in evaluating the program’s impact on students’ academic outcomes, such as course pass rates, retention, academic engagement metrics, etc., can download a list of identifiers, along with progress markers, for all students who begin the program within the past four years. Those identifiers can then be linked to the school’s own academic records to see if previously documented impact is realized for their own students.
Finally, schools invested in promoting belonging and growth mindset may be excited to try out Ascend, PERTS’ latest higher education program. Ascend helps colleges systematically measure and improve key learning conditions using evidence-based recommendations; real time, disaggregated feedback; and guided professional learning communities. Visit perts.net/ascend to learn how your college can use Ascend to measure and improve student experience.
