The Performance Report for Ohio's Colleges and Universities, 2006
Ohio Board of Regents
Like previous reports, the seventh annual "Performance Report for Ohio's Colleges and Universities" uses a variety of data and data sources to describe higher education in Ohio, from student academic preparation to learning environments, student progress, degree achievement, and licensure/employment outcomes. The report also provides information about research and job-training activities, and basic financial information about costs, state support and financial aid provided to students. The report is published in two documents: a summary of state-wide and sector-level information and a supporting document containing outcomes measures for individual higher education institutions. Significant findings indicate that: (1) Ohio has made progress in increasing higher educational attainment and research activity, but continues to lag behind other states and the national average; (2) Enrollment in higher education is increasing and the student body reflects the diversity of the Ohio population; (3) Thirty-seven percent of first-time freshmen in public institutions require remedial courses in their first year of college; (4) A high proportion of students attend more than one institution during their academic career and transfer students graduate at lower rates than non-transfer students, indicating that the transfer process is not seamless; (5) Although a majority of students who begin college are successful, there is room for improvement in the areas of retention, degree completion and time-to-degree; (6) Ohio has been graduating more students over the past five years and growth in graduate earnings is high, but in-state retention has decreased slightly over prior years; (7) Ohio's public higher education institutions operate efficiently compared to the rest of the United States; and (8) Tuition fees tend to be high in Ohio, but can be offset by financial aid to those who qualify. (Contains 15 figures and 32 tables.)
