Collecting and analyzing data is vital to the college access field and to its practitioners. With accurate data our members can identify program goals, monitor student progress, assess and evaluate programs, and demonstrate the effectiveness of their work. AzCAN assists members with data in two major ways: through AZ Common Measures, and the National Student Clearinghouse.
AZ Common Measures
AZ Common Measures is a statewide set of data points that all AzCAN members can monitor and compare to their students’ progress. The measures also provide a method for tracking our collective progress as we work together to support student success.
National Student Clearinghouse
As a member benefit we also provide reduced rates on data from the National Student Clearinghouse, the nation’s leading source of postsecondary enrollment and completion. We encourage our members to use this data to track student progress, even after students have left their programs.
