Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System Core Indicators of Effectiveness Report.
Colorado Community Coll. and Occupational Education System, Denver. Dept. of Research and Planning.
In response to core indicators of effectiveness developed by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System (CCCOES) initiated a system-wide project to develop core indicators specific to the state's colleges. The project was intended to reflect the immediate needs for the public and the legislature to understand the performance of the CCCOES in many key areas. Based on the AACC indicators and meetings with college presidents, vice presidents, deans, and research directors, the CCCOES developed the following core indicators: (1) student goal attainment; (2) a global measure of persistence, completion, and transfer; (3) specific persistence rates; (4) degree and certificate completion; (5) transfer; (6) a transfer rate for each college; (7) graduate employment in the workforce; (8) success in subsequent, related coursework for basic skills students; (9) participation rate in service area for credit programs; (10) employer assessment of students; (11) demonstration of critical literacy skills; (12) demonstration of citizenship skills; (13) client assessment of programs and services; and (14) responsiveness to community needs. The CCOES was given the responsibility for developing the first nine indicators, while the final five are the responsibility of individual colleges. Systemwide data on outcomes as of fall 1994 for the first nine indicators are included. (TGI)
