Can we include students who don't complete their first year in our admission validity study?

beginning of content:

If the student completed at least one semester, you should definitely include their data; if not, it is probably still a good idea. Although these students' records will not be used in the validity analyses if no criterion is present, they will be included on the electronic files you get back from ACES. This might help you to do internal retention analyses for students who drop out.

Still have a question?
