This report highlights information gathered from Western Washington University's Student Tracking System. Originally, it was included as part of a report to the Assessment Task Force, whose directors and coordinators represent all Washington State universities, four-year colleges, and community colleges. The purpose of the Assessment Task Force is to address the Higher Education Coordinating Board's mandate that Washington State institutions of higher learning develop a system of assessment, which will in turn improve the quality of education in this state. Information compiled herein has been categorized into three areas: baseline, intermediate assessment, and end-of-program assessment. Three subcategories of baseline information are included: new student headcount enrollment, average GPA by of entering class, and average test scores of entering freshmen. Each subcatgory has been analyzed by admit status, gender, and ethnic group. Intermediate assessment addresses the issue of fall-to-fall retention rates of new students. A two period has been analyzed by admit status, gender, and ethnic group. Finally, end-ofprogram assessment delineates the number of students from the entering class of Fall 1985 who graduated. Five academic years have been analyzed, once more by admit status, gender, and ethnic group.
