Student Achievement Statistics listed below and are available for Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College through the 2016 Higher Education Report card, found at http://webhost-wp.wvnet.edu/wvctcs/wp-content/uploads/sites/15/2017/10/Report-Card2016.pdf


Student Success

The student success rate is used to evaluate the success of all students who seek a certificate or degree. The success rate is calculated by following a cohort of first-time freshman, both full- and part-time, for six years. Students are measured as being successful if they achieved one of the following benchmarks: certificate, associate’s degree, or transfer to a four-year institution without earning a certificate or associate’s degree. This measure is more appropriate for tracking students in two-year institutions because it accounts for the high percentage of students who enroll part-time. It also provides students with intermittent enrollment patterns as a result of work and family obligations, or who need extra time to complete developmental education, enough time to achieve a successful outcome.

Student Success Rate

Institution 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009
Eastern WV Community and Technical College 15.6% 17.6% 21.7% 22.0% 35.1% 26.5%


Retention Rate

This indicator provides the proportion of students from the previous fall’s cohort of first-time, full- and part-time freshmen who returned in the fall of the indicated year to any institution in the state’s public system. This is a change from the measure used in previous Report Cards which only assessed the retention rates of full-time students. Further, retention is measured at end-of-term rather than at census as in previous years. Students were included whether or not they were degree or certificate seeking. This first-year retention is an important milestone on the way to completion of a degree or certificate.

One-Year Retention Rates

Institution 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
Eastern WV Community and Technical College 55.0% 62.4% 59.5% 50.0% 50.0%
Career-Technical Certificate Program Completers

This indicator provides the number of students completing certificate programs that are designed to prepare students to enter directly into employment in a specific career and meet the workforce needs of local employers. The certificate programs require at least 30 credit hours of which six credit hours must be in general education.

Number of Career-Technical Certificate Graduates

Institution 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 % Change 2011-2015
Eastern WV Community and Technical College 16 37 47 65 61 281.3%

Career-Technical Associate's Program Completers

This indicator provides the number of students who completed associate’s degree programs in career-technical fields each academic year. Associate’s degrees require a minimum of 60 credit hours and indicate that the student has completed a program of academic development and has achieved a level of performance reflected in student learning outcomes sufficient to progress to upper division collegiate work or to enter directly into specific occupations in the workforce.

Number of Career-Technical Associate's Program Graduates

Institution 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 % Change 2011-2015
Eastern WV Community and Technical College 43 41 66 77 58 34.9%
Graduation Rates

This indicator provides the proportion of associate’s degree-and certificate degree-seeking students, full- and part-time, who earned any award within six years at any institution in the system. Rates are provided for students’ institution of origin. Six-year rates are reported because measuring certificate and associate’s degree graduation rates within a three-year period fails to take into account the non-traditional (e.g., non-continuous or part-time) enrollment of many community and technical college students.

Six-Year Graduation Rate of Associate/Certificate-Seeking Students

Institution 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009
Eastern WV Community and Technical College 15.0% 13.3% 38.1% 22.2% 23.3% 20.3%
