Fundable Outcomes for Workforce Development. Information Capsule.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL. Office of Institutional Research.
This research brief from Miami-Dade Community College (Florida) addresses fundable outcomes for workforce development. Workforce development funding depends on the ability to earn 'points' for completions and placements. Miami-Dade Community College produced 7,542 fundable outcomes for 1999-2000, compared with 3,966 for 1998-1999. These included 2,039 graduates; 3,603 occupational or literacy completion points; and 1,900 placements. The increase in numbers for 1999-2000 was due to the reporting of completion points. By program category, Associate in Science programs produced 2,189 fundable outcomes, 42 fewer than last year. Credit certificate programs produced 158 outcomes, 17 more than last year. Vocational Certificate programs produced 2,388 fundable outcomes (1,061 were occupational completion points), which was 908 more than last year. Adult Basic and GED programs produced 2,807 fundable outcomes (2,542 were literacy completion points), which was 2,693 more than last year. The largest number of outcomes and largest increase was for the School of Community Education, where literacy completion points were captured for 1999-2000. The School of Business and Computer Information Systems now ranks second in outcomes, and also showed an increase due to occupational completion points for vocational certificates reported in 1999-2000.
