Traditional Tracking Approach
This has been the most widely used approach for program and college level tracking over the last two decades. This approach captures academic major that students declared at the beginning of their first semester. Although students may switch the major prior to graduation, this approach concerns about the first declared major and ignores any subsequent ones.*Data are provided by Institutional Effectiveness & Analytics
SJSU Tracking Approach
This is an in-house approach designed to allow students enough time to decide about their program of study (or major). For first-time freshman, the decision period is two years, for transfers it is one year. We consider a group of students who start at SJSU at the same time, but do not start tracking until the end of the decision period. The newly defined group is called a "progressive cohort". Therefore, the graduation rate was computed by dividing the number of students who graduated from SJSU by the total students in the progressive cohort.
