CASSIE

The Consortium for Analysis of Student Success through International Education

Rationale and Research Questions

International educators take as an article of faith that their programs result in life-transforming learning outcomes for students. Faith is powerful, but higher education resource allocation processes increasingly demand empirical accountability. Though the empirical evidence base for international education learning outcomes is growing, it remains thin. One area of international education outcomes research that promises to lend accountability pertains to the impact of international education on college success and completion (Rubin, et al., 2014). [Note: references appear at the end of the proposal narrative; but to conserve space, only minimal citation from the scholarly literature is provided]. Accordingly, the proposed project will establish a national Consortium for Analysis of Student Success through International Education (CASSIE).
