Beyond the Looking Glass: Assessing Performance in California Postsecondary Education. Commission Report 08-03
California Postsecondary Education Commission
This item summarizes the Commission's examination of performance measures over the past 18 months. Sustained focus for the period was on four areas of performance: (1) Preparation for college entry and success; (2) Affordability and accessibility; (3) Student success; and (4) Contributions to California's economic, civic, and social development. The report provides a policy context for the Commission's work on assessing higher education performance. Major findings and lessons learned from this examination are highlighted in the report, and critical issues and questions for the Commission to consider are identified. The report also underscores the importance of California adopting a set of statewide goals for all of postsecondary education to assess performance. Three appendixes include: (1) Ethnic Parity Ratio, Undergraduate Population 18-24, 1997 to 2005; (2) Commission Reports on the Accountability Framework; and (3) Commission Policy Options. (Contains 14 endnotes and 5 figures.)
