ARM Network Program Participant Outcomes Data

ASHA currently supports approximately 300 individuals annually through ARM Network programs. To assess the impact of these programs towards increasing the number of PhD faculty and advancing the generation of research needed to support evidence-based practice, ASHA collects data on key scholarly accomplishments of program participants. ASHA measures short and long-term participant outcomes by surveying participants at 3 years and at 6 years following their participation. Responses reflect activities accomplished at any point during those respective time frames. Below are data collected over the past three years and, therefore, the short-term and long-term outcomes reflect the accomplishments of different cohorts.

PROGENY, SPARC, ARTA, & RMPTA Participant Outcomes

PROGENY, SPARC, ARTA, & RMPTA Participant Outcomes

  Short-Term (3-Yr) Long-Term (6-Yr)
Cohort (program participation year) 2017–2019 2014–2016
Survey response rate 39% (191/488)  41% (136/334) 
Non-White and/or Hispanic or Latino respondents 23% (42/187) 21% (28/134) 

Key Take Aways:

  • Over 90% or more of the respondents continued to engage in research activities in the years following their participation.
  • Approximately half of them continued to be students or hold an academic or research position in the short term with slightly less in the long-term.

AARC, GRRT, CPRI, & DISTAnce Participant Outcomes

AARC, GRRT, & CPRI Participant Outcomes

  Short-Term (3-Yr) Long-Term (6-Yr)
Cohort (program participation year) 2017–2019 2014–2016
Survey response rate 62% (58/93) 70% (57/81) 
Non-White and/or Hispanic or Latino respondents 16% (9/58)  19% (11/57) 

Key Take Aways:

  • All the respondents continued to hold an academic or research position even 6 years following participation.
  • Within 3 years, 35% were promoted and 84% were awarded research funding.
  • Outcomes were even stronger in the long-term, with 74% promoted and 91% awarded research funding within 6 years of participation.

Note: DISTAnce was launched in 2019 and, therefore, only short-term outcome data are available at this time.
