Tennessee State Board of Regents, Nashville.
The document comprises of the Tennessee Board of Regents' (TBR) third annual report card and a press release about the report card. The report card evaluates student learning, academic program, faculty productivity, and financial accountability. Each report card provides outcome data on 15 different performance indicators, which are compared to regional and national reports where data are available. Examples of indicators in the report card include the following: the percentage of TBR students who passed professional licensure exams on the first attempt; student employment within three months of graduation in jobs related to their degree; and a measurement of the quality of academic programs at TBR institutions (i.e., national accreditation and peer review results). Eighty-one percent of TBR undergraduate program evaluated by external review teams met at least 90% of the established standards. During the 9-month school year, each TBR university and 2-year college faculty member provides on average 475 hours of student instruction. On average, TBR spends about 75 cents on every dollar in academic and student related functions, compared to 62 percent nationally. (JA)
