Completion descriptors are indicators that you optionally create when designing your completion study. They define characteristics potentially associated with non-completing students and are constructed by specifying a cutoff value for any of the SAT score, HSGPA, or college GPA predictors. Students at or below the cut-point on the predictor are identified and several tables and graphs in the study present how many non-completing students exhibit these characteristics, singly and in combination, providing additional insight into non-completing students. For example, if HSGPA is a predictor, then at your institution, students with a HSGPA at or below 3.0 might be considered more at risk and a completion descriptor could be defined on this basis.
