Performance Indicators of California Higher Education, 1999. The Sixth Annual Report to California's Governor, Legislature, and Citizens in Response to Assembly Bill 1808 (Chapter 741, Statutes of 1991).
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This sixth annual report on the performance indicators of California higher education presents background information on the development and recent revision of California's performance indicators for higher education; describes the scope of the current set of indicators, highlighting recent trends; and delineates some recent developments and future plans. The performance indicators are divided into five sections: (1) population (age, racial/ethnic, educational attainment, earnings by level of educational attainment); (2) fiscal context (state general fund appropriations, student fees, student financial assistance, median family income); (3) student preparation (high school graduates by major geographic region, racial/ethnic composition of graduating class, grade point average, achievement); (4) student access (enrollment as first-time freshmen at public colleges and universities, college-going rates, racial/ethnic enrollment, community college transfers, graduate enrollment, transfer students); and (5) student outcomes (five-year persistence rates, number of students served by programs for students with disabilities; baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral degrees awarded.) Among the highlights noted are the recent release of 60 performance measures covering: student access, student success, staff composition, and fiscal conditions. Also noted are appropriations for the Partnership for Excellence program, which is intended to provide documentation of system performance in five defined outcomes in exchange for additional funding. Relevant state statutes are appended. (CH)
