Wyoming Community Colleges. Annual Performance Report: Core Indicators of Effectiveness 2009-2010
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 in 2002. 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 five state interest categories: educated citizenry, diversified economy, workforce development, efficient and effective systems, and accountability and improvement. 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, using 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 and is beginning to allow a documented and historical perspective on these measures. (Contains 5 figures and 15 tables.) [For the 2008-2009 performance report, see ED535830.]
