Institutional Effectiveness Report.
College of the Canyons, Santa Clarita, CA.
This is the first edition of the College of the Canyon's (California) Institutional Effectiveness Report, which is modeled after the statewide report prepared by the Chancellor's Office. The college is measuring 60 effectiveness indicators in four mission areas: student access, student success, staff composition, and fiscal condition. A brief introduction addresses the following five questions: What is institutional effectiveness? Why must we evaluate it? What are community colleges measuring? What is College of the Canyons measuring? What are the challenges ahead? The remainder of the report presents the definition, use, analysis, and planning impact of each of the 60 indicators, divided into the 4 mission areas. Student access indicators include: external impacts on enrollment; fall and spring enrollments (1993-1997); enrollments by gender, race/ethnicity, age groups, level of education, and citizenship status; financial aid programs; and disabled student programs and services. Student success indicators include: ESL and Basic Skills completion by race/ethnicity and gender; certificates awarded by race/ethnicity, gender, and by program type; course enrollments; degrees awarded; and course completion rates. Staff composition indicators include gender and race/ethnicity of all faculty, administrators, classified staff, and other employees. Fiscal condition indicators (for 1994-95 to 1998-99) include: general fund revenue sources; unrestricted general fund expenditures; reserve level; and salaries and benefits. (CAK)
