IE Performance Measures
The North Carolina Board of Community Colleges adopted 12 performance measures for accountability in 1999. In the 2007 session, the General Assembly approved modifications to the North Carolina Performance Measures and Standards. As a result, the number of performance measures was reduced to 8. These performance measures focus primarily on student success and serve as the System’s major public accountability tool. Standards of performance have been established for measures identified as being critical to ensure public accountability for programs and services. Again in 2013 the performance measures were revised. This revision included 8 measures and has system-wide baselines and goals. The baselines and goals are good for three years and will be reset for the 2016 report. The current performance measures also have a funding component.
