At many colleges and universities one can clearly identify students as admitted to the college or program, graduating or finishing a program, etc. Some of these same criteria are used at College of DuPage when students in programs are clearly admitted and completed. Such is not, however, the situation with general education, like at australianwritings paper writing
. Students come for a few courses, come to complete degrees, come to earn enough credit to transfer, etc.
Along with this lack of clearly identified qualification, past efforts at the college to recruit students’ participation in testing have failed despite rewards including free course work and bookstore coupons. (It may be that the idea of testing is the issue, given students’ willingness to participate in focus groups when offered pizza and pop.)
