In its short history, Doral College has proudly graduated three classes of talented students, beginning with the Class of 2014. The College’s alumni now total 62 young men and women from five high-performing charter high schools. As of 2015, all graduates of the College have been assessed with the ETS® Proficiency Profile (Abbreviated Form) upon completion of the program, with truly impressive results.
The ETS® Proficiency Profile assesses all four general education skills—critical thinking, reading, writing and mathematics. It is one of three instruments approved for use in meeting Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA) requirements, and provides the College with a basis for evaluation of its program, using comparative data on over 500 institutions and 550,000 students.
In evaluating the results of the 2015 and 2016 graduating classes, the College found that its average far exceeded that of every data set used for comparison, in every subscore area and proficiency classification assessed. To be specific, the College compares its average score to the average score of three comparative data groups: sophomores in Associate of Arts programs, sophomores in Bachelor’s degree programs, and all student grades at all school types. In the 2015 data set, the average total score for these groups was 438.5, 440.0, and 441.4 respectively. In comparison, the average total score of the DC Class of 2015 was 472.7, with each individual student scoring above a 450. For 2016, the data set’s average scores were 439.3, 437.4, and 442.1 respectively. The average total score of the DC Class of 2016 was 468.21.
Furthermore, graduates scored significantly higher than their peers in subgroup and proficiency classification areas. In the reading subgroup, the DC Class of 2015 had an average score or 125.55, with data set averages coming in at 116.58, 116.78, and 117.14. Similarly, in 2015, 91% of the DC class scored proficient in level 1 of mathematics, compared with just 45%, 47%, and 50% of each of the data sets.
100% of Doral College graduates have gone on to continued study at postsecondary institutions. Many to some of the finest schools in the country. They can be found on the ivy league campuses of Brown, Harvard, and Cornell Universities, at liberal arts schools like Hamilton and Williams College, and well-recognized state schools like University of Florida and Florida State University.
