Whether you are a two-year community college or an R1, great teaching has the power to change students’ lives in significant and impactful ways. That is the takeaway from a new meta-analysis of 11 recent studies on the impact of ACUE Certified faculty teaching across eight ACUE partner institutions across the country.
In 2022, ACUE’s research team partnered with Northwestern University’s Elizabeth Tipton, Ph.D., a leading scholar in the field of meta-analysis, to pinpoint the average effect of ACUE faculty on student course outcomes that could be expected at any type of institution.
What ACUE partners can expect on average:
↑ 1 percentage point increase in course completion rates
↓ 3 percentage point decrease in DFW rates
↑ .06 point increase in students’ average course grades (on a 4.0 scale)
