Wyoming Community College System 2001-2002 Performance Report: Core Indicators of Effectiveness.
Wyoming Community Coll. Commission, Cheyenne.
This document focuses on the performance of some of Wyoming's community colleges as measured by 13 indicators chosen by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). Seven Wyoming community colleges and the Wyoming community college commission use these indicators. The core indicators are as follows: (1) student goal attainment; (2) persistence (Fall to Fall); (3) degree completion rates; (4) placement rates in the workforce; (5) employer assessment of students; (6) licensure and certification pass rates; (7) client assessment of programs and services; (8) demonstration of critical literacy skills; (9) number and rates who transfer including performance after transfer; (10) success in subsequent, related coursework; (11) participation rate in service areas; and (12) responsiveness to community needs. The document is divided into sections that explain each indicator. The document examines how much improvement the community colleges have made according to the indicators and in which areas the colleges could improve in the future. The hope of the author is that the data cited in the document will be used to satisfy the needs of the students and the community served by these seven Wyoming community colleges.
