Public Community and Technical College Institutional Effectiveness Evaluation Process.
Texas State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin. Div. of Community Colleges and Technical Institutes.
This document summarizes the Public Community and Technical College Institutional Effectiveness Process sponsored by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Institutional Effectiveness (IE) process was implemented in response to the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act, which stipulates that public institutions of higher education offering technical/vocational education programs supported by funds from the Act must be evaluated periodically. Two methods of evaluation are available. The first is an on-site evaluation conducted by peer reviewers. The second is an information and data review conducted by Coordinating Board staff members. The IE process is based on seven critical success factors. Each critical success factor is evaluated based on specific measures and standards. Institutional characteristics include: (1) mission/strategic planning/institutional resources; (2) effective use of Perkins resources; (3) access/effectiveness of student services; (4) achievement; (5) continuing education/workforce development; (6) quality of academic areas; and (7) quality of workforce education programs. The document also provides the specific measures and standards utilized to evaluate each success factor. (RC)
