Newly redesigned, the CIRP Summer Institute enhances your ability to use CIRP data for assessment, campus decision-making, or your own research. Participants will learn about the conceptual frameworks of the three CIRP student surveys, findings from major areas of CIRP research, and how to analyze their own CIRP data. The CIRP Summer Institute also provides instruction in using the new CIRP Constructs, created using Item Response Theory (IRT), and now an important part of how CIRP survey results are interpreted and utilized.
Institute sessions will include: CIRP Conceptual Framework, CIRP Constructs and Item Response Theory, Benchmarking, Getting the Most of CIRP’s Standard Reports, Using CIRP data to Study Retention, and Presenting Findings on College Impact.
In addition to the institute sessions, participants will conduct their own CIRP study and choose one of two tracks. In Track 1 participants will use descriptive statistics in their CIRP study and in Track 2 participants will use multiple regression and descriptive statistics. Participants need little or no experience with SPSS for Track 1 and some familiarity with SPSS and a basic knowledge of regression analysis for Track 2.
The 2010 CIRP Summer Institute will take place on the UCLA campus July 28-30, 2010.
