Belcher, Marcia J.
Based on data submitted in September 1994 to the Florida Community College System for its annual accountability report, this document compares accountability outcomes for Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) to the system as a whole. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) while 65% of the public high school graduates and 61% of new community college students were White systemwide, only 21% of the high school graduates and 13% of the community college students were White in M-DCC's Dade County; (2) the success rate of M-DCC students after 4 years was 70%, lower than the systemwide rate of 72%, while M-DCC's graduation rate was 19%, compared to 23% systemwide; (3) the average grade point average (GPA) of M-DCC graduates in the state university system was 2.72 compared to 2.77 systemwide, while 70% of White, 64% of Hispanics, and 52% of Black non-Hispanics at M-DCC had a GPA at or above 2.5; (4) 89.3% of the students taking licensure exams passed, and 91.1% of the associate degree students found a job related to their education or continued their education; (5) 69% of M-DCC students failed college-level entry tests, compared to 57% of community college students statewide; and (6) on state academic skills tests, 66% of M-DCC students passed all four sections, compared to a systemwide rate of 76%. Appendices contain 13 tables and accountability comparisons. (TGI)
