Accountability for Student Success in Washington Higher Education. Summary Report
Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board
This report summarizes Washington-statewide results achieved in the most recent academic year for which statewide data are available (in most cases, the 2005-2006 academic year). Data on results for individual four-year institutions, as well as a variety of background information and contextual data is presented separately in a comprehensive report. To assist the reader in understanding the meaning of results from the most recent year, trend data is provided. Results from two previous periods of time are shown: (1) The annual average for the five years from the 1997-1998 academic year though 2001-2002; and (2) The annual average for the three years immediately preceding the most recent year. Comparable data from other states is included when available. Placing students at the center of policy development is a commonly sounded theme. Focusing on students is a challenge when it comes to reporting statewide system results. A foundational purpose of the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) is to advocate for students. This report spotlights a few of the students whose lives and educational experiences lie behind the numbers and the percentages. State policymakers are commended for creating opportunities for these students and urged to ensure opportunities will remain available for students who have yet to knock on the door of higher education.
