Annual Performance Report: Performance Indicators, 2014-2015
Wyoming Community College Commission
W.S. 21-18-202 (h)(iii) mandates that the Wyoming Community College Commission (WCCC) develop performance benchmarks, outcome measures, and other performance indicators which serve as the basis for annual reporting to the legislature and the governor. The annual reporting must include, but is not limited to, the following measures: (1) student goal attainment and retention; (2) student persistence; (3) degree and certificate completion rates; (4) placement rate of graduates in the workforce; (5) licensure and certification pass rates; (6) demonstration of critical literacy skills; (7) success in subsequent, related coursework; and (8) number and rate of students who transfer. In an effort to accommodate the mandate set forth in Wyoming statute and to streamline the performance indicator reporting process, the decision was made to specifically address the required performance measures. The "Wyoming Community College Commission Statewide Strategic Plan: Planning for the Future of Wyoming's Community Colleges," developed in 2009, identified five primary state interests that will drive investment in community college programs and services. These state interests focus on what colleges can do to meet statewide goals, what structures and supports are needed to help Wyoming community colleges improve their services, and most importantly what services and resources are necessary to assist Wyoming residents in achieving their potential as productive, educated citizens. These state interests as defined by the 2010 "Wyoming Community College Commission Statewide Strategic Plan" are: (1) Educated Citizenry; (2) Diversified Economy; (3) Workforce Development; (4) Effective and Efficient Systems; and (5) Accountability and Improvement. On-going development and adaptation of the Strategic Plan in 2013-14 identified four derivatives of these five primary state interests: (1) Participation (Access); (2) Progress; (3) Performance; and (4) Placement. This report aligns the performance indicators required by statute with the objectives contained in the WCCC Statewide Strategic Plan 2.0. Commission staff have matched the eight Wyoming statutorily required performance indicators with the new Strategic Plan's 4 P's of success. Progress and performance incorporate many of the components of the eight requirements.
