A record number of communication sciences and disorders (CSD) graduate programs responded to the 2010 Higher Education Data System (HES) Graduate Guide Survey, yielding a wealth of information now available online.
The survey, fielded in the fall of 2010, was sent to 257 institutions with graduate programs in audiology, speech-language pathology, and speech, language, and hearing sciences. The State-by-State Data Report on CSD Education for Academic Year 2009–2010 includes data received from the 89% of institutions that completed the survey. Institutions offering entry-level audiology degrees had the highest response rate (97%); the response rate for institutions with speech-language pathology master's programs was 89%. Ninety-two percent of institutions offering CSD doctorates also submitted data.
Included in the report are tables on number of applications, admission rates [PDF], enrollment, graduation rates, and first employment. Time to degree and administrative location of programs are also included. This year's report features a “Highlights” section and data tables on student funding.
Survey data provide ASHA, members, and the academic community relevant and timely state-by-state information on the current status of CSD education and the student pipeline across areas of study and degree programs.
The data report differs from the information available on EdFind, which provides statistics on individual academic programs. The State-by-State Data Reports on CSD Education aggregates program data within and across states.
Enhancements and improvements to the HES system are underway, including a new CSD Education Survey next fall. For additional information about the CSD Education Survey, contact hes@asha.org; for questions on the data reports, contact academicaffairs@asha.org.
