Tennessee Board of Regents Annual Report Card, December 1997.
Tennessee State Board of Regents, Nashville.
The Tennessee Board of Regents systemwide report card and individual report cards for each of the 14 community colleges are presented. The purpose of developing this report card was to respond to the public's increased calls for accountability in higher education. The report cards--47 in all, one for the system and one for each of the 46 university, community college, and technology center campuses --are meant to make information on each of 15 performance indicators available and readily comprehensible to the public. The following accountability indicators are discussed: (1) licensure fields; (2) job placement; (3) student satisfaction; (4) alumni satisfaction; (5) core knowledge and skills; (6) graduation rates; (7) degrees conferred; (8) program accreditation; (9) external peer review; (10) faculty productivity; (11) tuition and fees; (12) staffing; (13) expenditures; (14) private giving; and (15) financial aid. Fifteen tables are presented, one for each of the accountability measures, including a comparison between Tennessee data, regional data, and national data, when available. (AMA)
