Graduation Attainment Efficiency

Ralph V. Rogers, Ph.D.

Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

“Increasing productivity in higher education will depend in part on building strong accountability systems that move away from the ones primarily in use today, which tend to emphasize inputs over outcomes and the collection and reporting of data as opposed to using the information in decision-making. Revamping states’ higher education accountability systems should focus on increasing the use of performance and outcome metrics and then using those metrics to make and evaluate policy decisions, particularly in areas such as budgeting, funding, and regulation.”

Complete to Compete

From Information to Action: Revamping Higher Education Accountability Systems.

2010-2011 Nation Governors Association Chair’s Initiative

four key policy questions
Four key policy questions
  • To what extent are public higher education institutions meeting the state’s need for an educated workforce and supporting progress toward longer term economic goals?
  • How many students at public institutions are graduating relative to total enrollment?
  • What is the return on states’ and students’ investment in public institutions in terms of completed certificates and degrees?
  • How can public institutions demonstrate that efficiency gains are being achieved without sacrificing student learning?
four key outcome metrics
Four key outcome Metrics
  • Degrees awarded (annual)
  • Graduation rates
  • Transfer rates
  • Time and credits toward degrees
graduation rates
Graduation Rates
  • Integrated Postsecondary Education Data (IPEDS)
  • First-time, Full-time students who start in the Fall semester and graduate in six-years
  • Does not account for Part-time students
    • 37% of all students
  • Does not account for transfer students
    • 37% of students earning a bachelor’s degree attended more that one institution
    • Students transferring to another institution have a negative effect on the institution left
graduation rates cont
Graduation Rates (cont)
  • Does not account for students who start in the Spring or Summer Semesters
  • IPEDS rate only accounts for 48% percent of all undergraduate enrolled in four year institutions
  • Only 25% of students enrolled in residential, four-year colleges and financially dependent on their parents
    • The “traditional” university student
history of national graduation rates
History of National Graduation Rates
  • Before1985, no national institutional data on college graduation rates
  • 1985, NCAA required its member institutions to report graduation rate to compare student athletics to the overall student body
  • 1988, Federal law required all institutions receiving Title IV to submit annual reports to SOE containing information on graduation rates
    • Student Athlete Right-to-Know Act
  • 1990, Congress passed the Student Right-to-Know and Security Act
    • Intent was to protect educational interest of student athletes but athlete was removed from bill title
  • 2007, IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey no longer required institutions to report graduation rates for scholarship athletes
    • NCAA collects and report data on scholarship athletes
degree attainment efficiency
Degree Attainment Efficiency
  • Includes all graduates
    • Part-time, full-time, attended a single institution, transferred, began in any semester, or took more than six years to complete
  • Efficiency in relation to the size of the university’s enrollment (FTE) as an index against a standard of perfect efficiency
  • Perfect would be 25% of students admitted every year and 25% of the students graduate every year
    • 25% FTE graduation per year = 100% efficiency

Degree Attainment Efficiency (cont)

Number Graduates in a year__X4 = DAE

Full time equivalent (FTE)


5000 FTE, 1000 graduates in a year

(1000/5000) X 4 = 80% DAE

Multiply by 2 for associate degrees
