North Carolina Community Coll. System, Raleigh.
In 1989, the North Carolina General Assembly adopted a provision that mandated that the State Board of Community Colleges develop definable statewide measures of accountability. In 1993 the General Assembly passed a special provision on accountability. An Accountability Task Force was appointed and charged with development of institutional performance standards on critical success factors. The standards are listed in the document. A second task force, the Program Review Task Force, was charged with responding to Senate Bill 27. A third task force, the Performance Measures and Standards Task Force, was appointed to work on the special provision enhancing accountability. As part of a response to the special provision in Senate Bill 1366, the Performance Measures and Standards Task Force recommended sixteen measures for program accountability. The following measures and standards are included: (1) progress of basic skills students; (2) college-level courses; (6) program enrollment; (7) student satisfaction of program completers and non-completers; (8) goal completion of program completers; (9) curriculum student progress and success; (10) employer satisfaction with graduates; (11) employment status of graduates; and (12) client satisfaction with customized training. Each measure includes a description/definition, methodology and data source information, reporting periods and timelines, standards to be met, and a rationale for the standard. Contains 14 references. (AMA)
