Student Data

Student Success and Outcome Data

Seven measures have been selected to provide an overview of student success at WSSU. These measures focus on retention, graduation rates, and time to degree completion. Five years of results for these measures are provided below.



Student Demographic Data

Demographic data from the most recent fall semester are available. These data consider the university’s census date and reflect information reported to the UNC System Office and the National Center for Education Statistics (IPEDS). Information is included for new freshmen, new transfer students, undergraduate, graduate students, and degrees conferred. Enrollment, retention rate, and graduation rate trends can also be found below.


WSSU Student Learning Outcomes

Winston-Salem State University has seven student learning outcomes: Critical Reading, Critical Thinking, Information Literacy, Oral Communication, Quantitative Literacy, Scientific Literacy, and Written Communication. WSSU's goal is to incorporate and assess the seven student learning outcomes across the curriculum as well as in co-curricular activities. Data for courses and co-curricular activities mapped to a WSSU student learning outcome are submitted online. Units are also encouraged to report and store additional information in Nuventive Improve, the university's assessment management system.

Data Collection for WSSU Student Learning Outcomes

Each semester, instructors who teach courses mapped to an institutional learning outcome are expected to apply the corresponding SLO rubric to a course assignment/artifact/activity. At this time, instructors report course-level rubric data through an online survey. Co-curricular activities mapped to institutional learning outcomes are also invited to submit rubric data through the online survey.



Student Learning Outcomes for Degree Programs

A list of degree programs and corresponding student learning outcomes can be found in the Winston-Salem State University academic catalogs. This information is provided to meet UNC’s Strategic Directions goals. Click on the links below to view the academic catalogs. Programs track their major-level outcomes through Nuventive Improve.

Data for major-level outcomes can be accessed internally via the Nuventive Improve system.  For access to Nuventive Improve information, please contact the Office of Institutional Assessment and Research at 336-750-8036 .
