Strengths Based Assessment: Predicting Student Success in an Online Graduate Leadership Program (poster 2)
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project was to describe online doctoral leadership students' signature themes from the CliftonStrengths assessment (Rath, 2007) and evaluate the predictive nature of these themes across a variety of student success indices. In anecdotal conversations with fellow program faculty over the past several years, loose ideas emerged about potential relationships between students' CliftonStrengths top-five themes and their general performance in the program. A deeper and more nuanced understanding about how these students' themes either contribute to their achievements or their challenges is important because it informs the relatively uncharted territory of graduate leadership education.
