To help potential users understand the benefits of joining the NASCAP Project, we have added several additional resources as PDF files: The first three are (a) an overview of the NASCAP Project, (b) a sample annual report, and (c) a NASCAP Project Supplement.
The overview of the NASCAP Project is provided as a power point presentation in PDF format gives a detailed overview of the NASCAP Project, how it works, and how the data might be used to improve conduct systems.
A sample report illustrates the types of information provided in our annual reports. While Alpha College is a fictitious institution, the data are real. Readers will note that interpretive comments about the institutional data are made with respect to a 3.0 base score and the mean score of the current reference group. Significant differences based on a .05 level of confidence and the corresponding Cohen’s D statistic is highlighted. The Cohen’s D indicates the strength of the significant difference, also referred to as the practical significance.
The third file highlights several additional assessment and staff training ideas that can be developed around the single SCAPQ item that addresses students’ perception of “telling their side of the story” in a conduct hearing. NASCAP Consultants can help their members develop assessment and staff training strategies around any of the items on either instrument.
More recently, we have added two more resources. The fourth file in this series is our latest update on trends from three years of NASCAP data and was presented at the at the 2011 Association of Student Conduct Administration and American College Personnel Association conferences. The last link is a short article about the NASCAP Project that appeared in the March 29, 2011 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education.
We hope these additional resources anticipate most of your questions and help you make a decision about becoming a member of the NASCAP Project. If you have questions or want to discuss that decision further, please contact Steve Janosik at email@example.com.
