Defining and Measuring High Impact Practices: A CSUF Case Study

High Impact Practices (HIPs) are an effective way to increase student performance and retention. However, how to identify HIPs and measure their impact remains a challenge. The office of institutional research and the office of assessment at CSUF collaborated to address this challenge by setting standards of identifying HIPs, and determining measurement expectations that are tied to their learning outcomes.
