California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report summarizes data from performance indicators used to assess California higher education. A brief overview covers historical development of the indicators and notes some recent developments and future plans. Data tables, accompanying charts, and notes covering each of the 75 performance indicators are organized into five major sections: (1) demographic characteristics of California's population; (2) fiscal support of public postsecondary education and student financial aid, as well as indicators used to assess instructional expenditures; (3) student preparation indicators, including the number and composition of the state's public high school graduates and their academic preparation; (4) student access indicators that measure participation in postsecondary education for first-time freshmen, community college transfer students, and graduate students; and (5) indicators of student experiences and outcomes that report one-, five-, and term-to-term persistence, and the number of degrees awarded. Also included is information on faculty composition. The appendix contains a copy of Assembly Bill No. 1808 of 1991 mandating this annual report. Also appended is a statement of the membership, functions, and operation of the Commission; and a list of other reports published by the Commission. (CH)
