2017 Alumni Employment Outcomes

​​
(Academic Year 2015—2016 Alumni Employment Outcomes)

Introduction
The information presented in this disclosure is intended to function only as a sample of the types employment in which graduates of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) work. It in no way guarantees that future graduates will secure employment with either the employers or in the job titles listed. Also, it is important to note that some job titles require state-specific licensure. When considering enrollment in a particular program offered by TCSPP, students are expected to be aware of whether their program of interest is licensure eligible and, if so, the licensing requirements in the state in which they plan to work.

Methodology
The Office of Institutional Research (OIR) surveyed TCSPP alumni who graduated in academic year 2015 – 2016 (AY 15 – 16)1 using a web-based questionnaire. The questionnaire contained a total of 117 survey items that were in the form of multiple choice questions, Likert response scales, and open-ended questions.

Using TCSPP’s alumni database, OIR identified 1,069 TCSPP alumni who graduated in AY 15 – 16 from a TCSPP campus. Contact information for the sample was provided by TCSPP’s alumni database. The survey was launched on July 17, 2017 and closed on August 13, 2017. The overall response rate for the survey is 24.2 percent with a margin of error of ±6.1 percent.2

In order to increase response rates, OIR first contacted individuals using an introductory email on July 17, 2017 with subsequent reminder emails. The total number of possible contacts attempted by OIR was five. Additionally, three survey respondents were randomly selected to win their choice of a $100 gift card or a $100 contribution toward a professional membership of their choice.

The results presented in the following disclosure are based on survey responses from 259 AY 15 – 16 survey respondents. Please note that this disclosure only includes information from academic programs that have five or more survey responses.3

2016 Alumni Employment Outcomes

(Academic Year ​2015—2016 Alumni Employment Outcomes)

Introduction
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP) annually surveys recent alumni to assess their professional growth and employment outcomes in order to support accreditation needs and examine the value of degree programs. In order to accomplish this, TCSPP tasked the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) with a web-based assessment of recent TCSPP alumni. This report examines general employment trends from the survey’s Summer 2016 administration which includes 628 responses from TCSPP alumni comprising of three academic years1: AY 10 – 11, AY 12 – 13, AY 14 – 15.

The 2016 assessment has two main functions:
1.) To provide support to accreditation by tracking employment outcomes and professional experiences of recent alumni.
2.) To provide information to TCSPP on the quality and value of career and alumni support services.

Methodology
The goal of OIR’s assessment is to provide information needed to serve both functions. In order to do this, OIR surveyed TCSPP alumni who received a conferred degree or certificate in academic years 2010 – 2011 (AY 10 – 11), 2012 – 2013 (AY 12 – 13), and 2014 – 2015 (AY 14 – 15) using a web-based questionnaire. The questionnaire contained survey items that were in the form of multiple choice questions, Likert response scales, and open-ended questions.

Using TCSPP’s alumni database, OIR identified 3,479 alumni who received a conferred degree or certificate in AY 10 – 11 (1,058 alumni), AY 12 – 13 (1,176 alumni), or AY 14 – 15 (1,245 alumni).2 The current assessment includes responses from 628 alumni.

In order to increase response rates, OIR first contacted individuals using an introductory email on July 18, 2016, that included an individualized link to the questionnaire. Individuals that had not responded to the survey received reminder emails with an individualized link on July 25, 2016. An additional four reminder emails were sent on August 1, 2016; August 8, 2016; August 10, 2016; and August 12, 2016. The total number of possible contacts attempted by OIR was six. Additionally, respondents were asked if they would like to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of three $100 gift cards.

________________
1 An academic year is defined as September 1st to August 31st.

2 Alumni who hold multiple conferred degrees or certificates in AY 10 – 11, AY 12 – 13, or AY 14 – 15 are asked to evaluate their most recent conferred degree with conferred degrees taking precedent over conferred certificates (e.g., an alumnus with conferred degrees in AY 10 – 11 and AY 14 – 15 are asked to evaluate their AY 14 – 15 degree; an alumnus with a conferred degree in AY 12 – 13 and a conferred certificate in AY 14 – 15 are asked to evaluate their AY 12 – 13 conferred degree).
