Wyoming Community Colleges. Annual Performance Report: Core Indicators of Effectiveness 2007-2008
Wyoming Community College Commission
The "Core Indicators of Effectiveness Report" delineates the performance of Wyoming's community colleges as measured by the 14 indicators set forth by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and adopted by the seven Wyoming community colleges and the Wyoming Community College Commission. These indicators, while providing some flexibility regarding programs and services, provide guidance on consistent measurements of performance and success of community colleges. The AACC Core Indicators of Effectiveness for Community Colleges were developed on the premise that a college is effective when its outcomes match its mission and stakeholders' needs within the limits of costs and available resources. The core indicators are grouped into six mission categories: student progress, workforce development, general education, transfer preparation, developmental skills, and outreach. The indicators are: (1) Student Goal Attainment; (2) Persistence (Fall to Fall); (3) Degree Completion Rates; (4) Placement Rate in the Workforce; (5) Employer Assessment of Students; (6) Licensure/Certification Pass Rates; (7) Client Assessment of Programs and Services; (8) Demonstration of Critical Literacy Skills; (9) Demonstration of Citizenship Skills; (10) Number and Rate Who Transfer; (11) Performance After Transfer; (12) Success in Subsequent, Related Coursework; (13) Participation Rate in the Service Area; and (14) Responsiveness to Community Needs. This report, based on the American Association of Community Colleges core measurements, shows that Wyoming's community colleges are performing well in fulfilling their multi-dimensional responsibilities in higher education in Wyoming. Consistent and continued use of these core measurements will produce trend information for each of these measures. Surveys of transfer students and graduates about their satisfaction with and importance of services and offices at their college are appended. (Contains 12 figures and 18 tables.)
