Student Success Metrics
To provide a holistic approach to the California community colleges’ work on student success, the Chancellor’s Office worked with a broadly representative group of practitioners to develop Student Success Metrics. Organized around common goals such as adult education/ESL, short-term career education, and degree/transfer, the metrics capture progression along students’ educational journey from recruitment to completion, transfer, and the workforce. Student Success Metrics pinpoint critical milestones and accomplishments that align with the Vision for Success and the Student Centered Funding Formula, and integrate metrics associated with various initiatives and funding streams.
Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative Portal
The Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) Portal is used by colleges and districts in a self-evaluation and planning process. In addition to documenting student achievements, it also includes fiscal stability, audit, and accreditation indicators. The student indicators will transition to the Simplified Metrics in 2018-19.
The Salary Surfer uses the aggregated earnings of graduates over a multi-year period documenting how much students earned two years and five years after receiving a certificate or degree in certain disciplines. This tool also provides information on which colleges offer programs in those specific disciplines and videos about these programs.
Data Mart provides information about students, courses, student services, outcomes, faculty and staff. The emphasis is to answer the questions of administrators, educators, parents, students, state leaders and professional organizations.
Data on Demand
Provides access to referential data files, categorical pre-allocation data files, Scorecard data files, Perkins Core Indicator data files and custom student data files and reports.
The LaunchBoard, a statewide data system supported by the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office and hosted by Cal-PASS Plus, provides data to California community colleges on enrollment, progress, success and employment outcomes for all community college pathways. The LaunchBoard includes dashboards and planning tools specific to the Adult Education Program, Strong Workforce Program, K-14 CTE Pathways, Guided Pathways and the Simplified Metrics, as well as a program review tool called the Community College Pipeline.
Cal-PASS Plus provides actionable data to help improve student success along the education-to-workforce pipeline. In addition to the LaunchBoard, it includes reports on topics such as transition from K-12 to college and STEM.
CTE Outcomes Survey
The CTE Employment Outcomes Survey is a statewide study to assess employment outcomes of students who have participated in career technical education coursework at California Community Colleges. Data tables and visualizations allow the public to access survey results.
