Improving Transfer from Two-Year to Four-Year Institutions
The project's team collaborates with faculty and administrators at QC and QCC to develop performance goals, methodologies, and rubrics to assess student learning outcomes and progress in STEM. Data from this project will contribute to enhance understanding of how students in STEM accumulate credits, progress academically, and attain STEM degrees.
The team also supports faculty writing articulation agreements between QCC and QC for all STEM majors. Some of these agreements will lead to dual degrees, based on curricula co-owned by the disciplinary faculty at QC and QCC.
TREX: Transfer Explorer (https://explorer.lehman.edu/) (previously known as the Transfer App, http://transfer-app.qc.cuny.edu): There are over a million rules that tell how courses transfer among CUNY colleges. This site lets you see what rules exist (or not), to provide feedback about existing rules, and to track the status of the rule review process. The tool is designed to help solve the transfer problem with the voracity of T-Rex!
