Consultation on Performance Indicators.
Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
This document offers the second set of annual performance indicators relating to publicly funded higher education institutions in the United Kingdom. The document has the additional purpose of allowing each institution to check its own indicators based on the information supplied in this paper; of allowing the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) to pose specific questions related to the indicators, for which they request answers; and to allow the institutions to comment on various aspects of the indicators and questions which they raise. The document provides some background about the information included, including follow-up procedures and a timetable, and discusses and defines new and existing indicators. Appended are technical notes and field definitions for the data files (unique student identifiers, fields of study, age groups and demographic information, as well as data relating to characteristics of the various institutions). Eight charts provide graphic displays of the various indicators. A final set of tables aligns units of assessment, i.e., courses of study, with cost centers (e.g., the courses in Classics and Ancient History are included in the Humanities group.) (RH)
