Minnesota Measures: 2009 Report on Higher Education Performance
Minnesota Office of Higher Education
Now in its third year, "Minnesota Measures" provides policymakers and educators with a statewide look at higher education effectiveness in the context of broad state objectives and national and international performance comparisons. Findings are reported across five goals: (1) Improve success of all students, particularly students from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education (College, Participation, Retention, Graduation Rates and Achievement Gap); (2) Create a responsive system that produces graduates at all levels who meet the demands of the economy (Enrollment Rates, Online learning, Degree Attainment, Program of Study and Occupational Demand); (3) Increase student learning and improve skill levels of students so they can compete effectively in the global marketplace (Learning Outcomes Assessment, Student Engagement, Graduate Preparation, Certification/Licensure and Preparation for Employment); (4) Contribute to the development of a state economy that is competitive in the global market through research, workforce training and other appropriate means (Research/Discovery and Workforce Development); and (5) Provide access, affordability and choice to all students (Student Choice, Net Price, Affordability and Borrowing Patterns.) An appendix includes Definitions, Terms and Sources. (Contains 20 endnotes, and unnumbered figures and tables.) [This report was published by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
