Accountability and Productivity. Report for the Illinois Community College System, 1993.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
Within the Illinois Community College System (ICCS), each of the 49 member colleges reports to the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) on their improvements in productivity. This report summarizes the productivity reports on the ICCS colleges, examines the results of a series of analyses of productivity conducted by the ICCB from a statewide perspective, and reviews state-level accountability and productivity improvement initiatives. Following an executive summary and brief introduction, the first section summarizes the results of the college productivity reports in the areas of instruction, public service, overall academic functions, and administrative functions. This section also discusses the integration of the Priorities, Quality, and Productivity (PQP) practices into institutional practices. The second section presents the results of the state-level system analyses, reviewing 12 low-enrollment curricula, full-time equivalent and headcount ratios, and cost analyses of administrative costs and public service expenditures. The third section describes state-level accountability and productivity initiatives, listing 19 measures enacted during 1993 and 5 measures to be enacted in 1994. This section also reviews initiatives designed to improve articulation, instruction, accountability, telecommunications, and workforce preparation. Appendixes making up two-thirds of the document include detailed tables describing college productivity improvement, low enrollment programs, staffing tables, cost tables, cost definitions, and an inventory of accountability measures.
