Dashboard Definitions

Enrollment
Enrollment or Course Enrollment is a college-wide number of grade notations.
For example, a student who received four grade notations counts as four enrollments.
Headcount
Headcount or Unduplicated Enrollment is the number of students with at least one  grade notation.
For example, a student is only counted once regardless of the number of grade notations received.
Success Rate
Success or Course Success is the number of enrollments with a grade of  A, B, C, Pass (P), or Credit (CR).
Success rates are calculated by dividing the number of A, B, C, P, and CR grades by the total number of grades awarded (A, B, C, P, CR, D, F, NP, I, W), and multiplying the result by 100.
Drop Rate
Drop or Course Drop is the number of enrollments with a grade notation of W (Withdrawal).

Drop Rates are calculated by dividing the number of W grades by the total number of grades awarded (A, B, C, P, CR, D, F, NP, I, W), and multiplying the result by 100.

Retention Rate
Course Retention or Course Completion is the number of enrollments with any grade notation except Withdrawal (W).
Course Retention rates are calculated by dividing the number of A, B, C, P, CR, D, F, NP, and I grades by the total number of grades awarded (A, B, C, P, CR, D, F, NP, I, W), and multiplying the result by 100.
Modality
Online is 100% of the instruction time through the internet.
Lecture is 100% face-to-face in a lecture class.
Lab is 100% face-to-face in a graded lab section.
