Developed by the GCCCD Student Success Committee in 2013, the Student Success Framework provided guidance and structure to the student achievement metrics detailed in the Key Performance Indicators Report. The Framework is based on a student pathways model for student achievement. Measurement and data definitions were developed collaboratively in the Institutional Research and Planning Committee throughout 2013-2014.
This report is to provide the college community with useful information as it relates to students achievement and success as well as to incorporate accountability measures from the Student Success Scorecard. The data collected here is generated both by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (via MIS reporting) and the GCCCD Research Database.
Lastly, this is an ongoing process and the future structure of this report will respond to the college’s need for data that is aligned with major initiatives associated with Strategic Planning, Enrollment Management, Program Reviews, and other major projects on the campus.
Recently enacted legislation established a new system of indicators and goals that is intended to encourage improvement in institutional effectiveness at California community colleges. The Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) is a collaborative effort to help advance the institutional effectiveness of California Community Colleges and, in the process, significantly reduce the number of accreditation sanctions and audit issues. Most importantly, IEPI will enhance the system’s ability to effectively serve students. An important focus of the grant is to draw on the exceptional expertise and innovation from within the system in advancing best practices and avoiding potential pitfalls.
