Next Generation Undergraduate Student Success Measurement Project
This project is a longitudinal study that aims to improve our understanding of the value of undergraduate educational experiences and promote evidence-based models of undergraduate student success. We are tracking a sample of UCI students over two years and gaining information about everything from transcripts, online classroom behavior, living situations, and student moods. The purpose of the study is to capture student experiences inside and outside the classroom and paint a complete portrait of the student experience at UCI.
