Spring11 FIG-15 Shorter Multimedia Certificates

6 June 2013

Area: Multimedia Arts

Participants:

Lee Marrs
Hannah Chauvet
Sabrina Nelson

Research Question:

Would shorter certificates result in more retention and persistence in MMArts?

Research Methods:

Surveyed MMArts students.

Findings:

  1. A majority of students taking courses are looking to upgrade their professional skills and only ⅓ of students are trying to transfer;
  2. A majority of students already have degrees;
  3. People with only GEDs or high school grads are not earning certificates (why?);
  4. Many students dropped classes because of external conflicts or didn’t understand what the course might teach them.

Resolutions:

  1. Develop more focused and easily obtainable certificates (that are stackable) to increase student success.

Final Report:
