Findings from the 2012 Senior Surveys

Authors: Garry Davis and Greg Cumpton
Date: February 2012
Publication Type: Report. 88pp.

This report discusses findings from the senior surveys conducted in the spring of 2012. Some notable student responses for the class of 2012 include when students first started thinking about college, how often during each week they studied for high school subjects, how well they felt their high school coursework prepared them for college coursework, and the types of colleges they applied to. This report also finds differences between 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 seniors’ responses on topics such as the amount of time spent working in paid employment outside of high school, their plans for postsecondary education, and their perceptions about the ease of applying for financial aid.

Publication Type:
Report. 72 pp.

This report presents a summary of findings from the evaluation of college access and persistence services
delivered by three ACAN member organizations. The findings in the report show that all three ACAN
member programs appear to have a significant, positive impact on participants’ college access. Because
this program was started in 2008 data on college persistence will be stronger as more students from
the programs reach the end of their college careers. Already, two of the three programs have shown
significant impacts on students’ college persistence.

These mechanisms include labor market information (LMI), provider certification, individual training accounts (ITAs), and performance standards and incentives. The findings are based on WIA study conducted 2003-2005 that examined the experiences of eight states.
