Choose Your Tour

The most efficient way for you to learn about the College Persistence Questionnaire (CPQ) depends upon what you need to know, your available time, and the style with which you travel through websites. Therefore, we have developed three tours for you to choose from:

The Introductory Tour was designed for counselors, faculty and policy makers who will use information from the CPQ but do not intend to conduct research with the instrument. You may progress through the tour in the order we have devised or click on a link to go directly to that page. These are the stops on the Introductory Tour.
