KPI Graduate Executive Summary Report, Summer 2000-Winter 2001.
Sheridan Coll. (Ontario).
Summarizes findings from the Key Performance Indicator Satisfaction Survey administered by Sheridan College in the summer 2000, fall 2000, and winter 2001 terms. This survey was administered in compliance with the Ontario government's efforts to increase the accountability of the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology through the measurement of institutional performance on five key performance indicators (KPI): (1) graduate employment; (2) graduate satisfaction; (3) employer satisfaction; (4) student satisfaction; and (5) graduation rate. The graduate employment, graduate satisfaction, and employer satisfaction data were collected through telephone surveys and utilized in the distribution of $14 million in performance-based funding. The graduate population for the survey period was 3,946 and the survey generated a 75% return rate. Key survey findings indicate that Sheridan College had high KPI satisfaction (80%) and KPI Employment (90%) ratings that were close to the Provincial averages. In addition, Sheridan's graduates were slightly more likely to recommend their college to others. Other key findings reported in the document include the top five drivers of KPI Satisfaction: (1) preparation for the job market; (2) specific job-related skills; (3) specific job-related knowledge; (4) skills developed in Co-op and career placement services; and (5) course content.
