Performance Measures and Indicators: 1998 Baseline Performance Reports for Institutions. Revised.

In 1997 the Oregon University System (OUS) identified four strategic goals for meeting state higher education needs: (1) strengthening the quality of instructional, research, and service programs; (2) expanding student access; (3) achieving appropriate cost effectiveness; and (4) enhancing graduates' employability. These goals guided the development of nine performance measures and indicators focusing on degree completion (six-year graduation rates), graduate abilities at degree completion, customer satisfaction, new students, student quality and diversity, graduate success and unmet state needs, external resources and entrepreneurship, state investment, and institutional management. An overview of the baseline performance of all OUS campuses found that the six-year graduation rate for entering freshmen had improved at five institutions, remained stable at one, and declined slightly for another. The pass rate for professional licensure examinations exceeded national pass rates for nearly all professional areas. The proportion of racial/ethnic minorities enrolled in regular programs increased for all OUS institutions, and the proportion of recent graduates employed or enrolled in graduate or professional school within 12 months of graduation ranged from 80 to 93 percent. Detailed reports are presented for each of the OUS institutions. (MDM)
