Scorecard on Colorado Public Higher Education: How the Public Higher Education System and Its Students Perform on Selected Measures.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This publication is the 1992 edition of an annual report on the status and performance of Colorado college students and the higher education system in Colorado. Data are provided on students, degrees, faculty, and higher education finance. The report uses a number of measures to evaluate the system's effectiveness in four system wide educational values: (1) educational excellence, (2) educational access and diversity, (3) efficiency in the delivery of education, and (4) adequate resources for the delivery of education. This edition includes several measures that are reported for the first time which are identified specially within the report. Highlights of the findings for educational excellence are that average graduate test scores on the Graduate Record Exam were higher than the national norms, and that on three tests for professional licensure in law and nursing state graduates passed at a rate higher than the national norm. Regarding access and diversity the report finds that participation of state high school graduates in public higher education increased over the last 5 years from 36.8 to 40.1 percent, and that the number of ethnic minorities receiving degrees has also increased. Appended technical information on the data is included. (Author/JB)
