Learner (Student) Success

Last Updated 10/07/2023

Learner/student success can be defined in many ways — one that is learner-centric and one that is institution- and policymaker-centric.

  • A general definition that is learner-centric — a determination of goals and personal situations as measured by each individual learner (student). Success by learners is often viewed as being able to support themselves after completing the educational process.
  • A definition which is higher education- and policymaker-centric — graduation rates, course completion, retention rates, academic achievement, degree attainment, credits completed, student advancement.
