Initiative Evaluation

Internally, Achieving the Dream colleges are constantly assessing the impact of their efforts to improve student success.  Additionally, College Spark supports an external evaluation of this initiative to identify promising practicies and learn more about how colleges can best institutionalize the practice of using evidence to drive decisions.  

Evaluation reports available to date include:
