Performance Indicators of California Higher Education, 2001. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This is the eighth annual report on California higher education performance indicators prepared by the California Postsecondary Education Commission under a legislative mandate. The report presents background on the development and recent revision of California's performance indicators for higher education, describes the scope of the current set of indicators reported by the Commission, and highlights recent trends based on current information related to these indicators. The higher education performance indicators in this report are divided into five categories: (1) population context; (2) fiscal context; (3) student preparation; (4) student access; and (5) student outcomes. Information in this report shows that more California students graduated from high school, although dropout rates remained constant. More high school students were taking college preparatory courses and Advanced Placement tests, and more were taking college entrance examinations and scoring above the national average. More California students are enrolling in the state's public colleges and universities, and overall, more students at the state's public universities are graduating sooner, with the number of college degrees and certificates up at all levels. Two appendixes contain the text of California legislation that directs the preparation of this report. (Contains 78 tables.) (SLD)
