California Higher Education Accountability: Goal--Student Success Measure-- Time-to-Degree. Commission Report 06-20
California Postsecondary Education Commission
This report is one in a series examining performance measures adopted by the Commission as part of an accountability framework for higher education in California. All measures correspond to one of four goals: (1) Student Preparation for College; (2) Affordability and Access; (3) Student Success in Progressing through College; and (4) Public Benefits of Postsecondary Education. Measuring time to degree, as gauged by four and five-year graduation rates of students at public universities is a component of determining how well students are progressing through the postsecondary education system. In addition to the measure discussed in this report, student persistence rates, degrees conferred for transfer students, and the impact of full-time and part-time enrollment on degree completion will also contribute to determining how well California is doing with regard to student success in completing educational goals. This report also compares California campuses with similar institutions nationwide. Appendix A provides: Carnegie Foundation Criteria Used to Determine UC and CSU Comparable Public Schools.
