Performance Measures for Student Success, 2013
North Carolina Community College System
The Performance Measures for Student Success Report is the North Carolina Community College System's major accountability document. This annual performance report is based on data compiled from the previous year and serves to inform colleges and the public on the performance of North Carolina's 58 community colleges. In 2010, President Scott Ralls established a Performance Measures Committee comprised of college presidents, vice-presidents, faculty, and directors to develop new performance-based student success measures to go into effect in 2013. After a year of researching, drafting, and soliciting feedback from college faculty and staff on potential measures, the Committee formally presented the following eight measures to the State Board: (1) Basic Skills Student Progress; (2) GED Diploma Passing Rate; (3) Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level English Courses; (4) Developmental Student Success Rate in College-Level Math Courses; (5) First Year Progression; (6) Curriculum Student Completion; (7) Licensure and Certification Passing Rate; and (8) College Transfer Performance. In November 2011, the State Board formally approved the Performance Measures. These measures were then submitted to the General Assembly in March 2012 and later adopted in June 2012 through Section 8.5 of S.L. 2012-142. In May 2012, President Ralls appointed a team of college presidents to a Performance Funding Committee to develop a performance funding model. One of the outcomes of this committee was the establishment of system-wide "baselines" and "goals" for each measure. Based on three years of historical data (if available) for each measure, baselines were set two standard deviations below the system mean, and the goals were set one standard deviation above the system mean. These baselines and goals remain static for three years and will be reset in the 2016 Report. This 2013 edition is the inaugural report utilizing the new measures, goals, and baselines. Additional performance measure tables are appended.
