Higher Education Counts: Accountability Measures for the New Millennium. First Report. Baseline Data Analysis. Public Act 99-285 & 00-220.
Connecticut State Dept. of Higher Education, Hartford.
Connecticut State law requires each constituent unit of higher education to submit its first accountability report to the Connecticut Commissioner of Higher Education by January 1, 2001. The Commissioner is charged with compiling these reports. The accountability measures used were developed by the state's Higher Education Coordinating Council. This document is the inaugural accountability report for Connecticut's higher education system. It provides, for the first time, a compendium of important and timely information about the system and about every public college in Connecticut. The report presents baseline data and trend analysis results on some 91 performance measures. In most instances, 5 years of data are presented to allow the evaluation of trends. The report begins with the presentation of system-level measures. The system-level measures are followed by reports from each of the constituent units of the state higher education system. After the information for each unit, a tentative timeline of future measurement development, refinement, and reporting is included in Attachment A. Attachment B lists the members of the Performance Measures Task Force. (Contains 73 tables and 96 figures.) (SLD)
