Student Impact Research Community

Analyzing Online Student Success

The CSU Student Quality Assurance Impact Research (SQuAIR) project strives to determine the impact of QA professional development and course certification on teaching performance and student success in CSU online courses. It is hypothesized that instructors who complete QA professional development and obtain course certification are better able to design and deliver online courses, more effectively engaging students and resulting in higher grades, improved course completion rates, higher student satisfaction, and ultimately a reduction in equity gaps.  SQuAIR Overview slidesThis link will take you to an external website in a new tab..
