Each of these performance models draws on performance indicators of different types (input, output, process, outcome) for different purposes.
We understand indicators more at the national level than at the institutional level
Human, financial and physical resources involved in supporting institutional programs, activities and services
eg funding, student entry and background data and staff data
Usually student related Information, has ‘political’ use regarding information on efficiency but provides little information regarding quality of teaching and learning
eg retention rate, progression rate, completion rate
Quality of the means used to deliver educational programs, activities and services, looks at how the system operates within its particular context, investigates the core of student learning experience (quality of teaching, curriculum, assessment)
Eg Policies and practices related to L and T, performance management and professional development of staff, quality of curriculum and the assessment of student learning and quality of facilities, services and technology
Quality of programs, activities and services or their benefits to students, states and society. Measure complex processes and results in terms of their quality and impact.
Eg student satisfaction, student learning, student grades, employer satisfaction
