Higher Education Counts: Accountability Measures for the New Millennium. 2004 Report
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
"Higher Education Counts" is an annual accountability report on Connecticut's state system of higher education. As required under Connecticut General Statutes Section 10a-6a-b, each constituent unit of higher education must submit an accountability report to the Commissioner of Higher Education each year by January 1st. The Commissioner, in turn, is charged with compiling and transmitting a consolidated accountability report to the Joint Standing Committee on Education by February 1st. The report must contain accountability measures that have been approved by the Board of Governors, and performance improvement targets that address six statutorily-defined state level goals. The measures reported are designed to provide external constituencies with answers to some basic questions about the return on their investment in Connecticut's higher education system. This report is organized around a structure which includes three levels of indicators: (1) State-Level Indicators; (2) Common Core of Institutional Measures; and (3) Constituent Unit Specific Indicators. Performance Measures Task Force information is attached. [For the 2003 report, see.]
