  1. Accountability Reporting for the Community Colleges(ARCC) Palomar College Presentation to Palomar College Board of Trustees March 11, 2008

  2. Overview • What you have in your packet • ARCC Background • Reporting Framework • Systemwide Measures • College Measures – What’s new this year

  3. What you have in your packet • Full report is NOT in your packet (over 700 pages) • Systemwide information • Intro to system measures • System measures • College information • Intro to the college measures • Palomar’s self-assessment and response • Palomar’s measures and profile

  4. ARCC Background • Accountability Reporting for the Community Colleges (ARCC) / AB1417 is the framework that provides for the annual evaluation of community college performance in meeting statewide educational outcome priorities.

  5. ARCC Background • Initiated by AB 1417 • Required the System Office to develop an accountability report/model • Replaced Partnership for Excellence

  6. ARCC Background • 2007-08 Report Timeline • January 29, 2008 - draft released to colleges • February 29, 2008 - college self-assessment due • March 26, 2008 - final report issued • By March 2009 - local Board of Trustee interaction

  7. ARCC Framework • Two levels: • Systemwide (7 measures) • College (7 measures)

  8. ARCC Framework • Four categories: • Student Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • Student Progress and Achievement: Vocational/Occupational/Workforce Development • Pre-Collegiate Improvement – Basic Skills and ESL • Participation Rates

  9. ARCC Systemwide Indicators And Highlights

  10. Systemwide Indicators • Student Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer (3 measures) • Annual percentage of BA/BS graduates at CSU/UC who attended a CCC • Annual volume of transfers • Transfer rate for 6-year cohort of First-Time Freshmen • Student Progress and Achievement: Vocational/Occupational/Workforce Development (2 measures) • Annual volume of vocational degrees and certificates by program • Increase in total personal income as a result of receiving a degree or certificate

  11. Systemwide Measures • Pre-Collegiate Improvement – ( 1 measure) • Annual volume of basic skills improvement • Access/Participation – (1 measure) • Participation rate

  12. Systemwide MeasuresAnnual Percentage of Graduates who Attended a Community College UC Graduates

  13. Systemwide MeasuresAnnual Percentage of Graduates who Attended a Community College CSU Graduates

  14. Systemwide MeasuresAnnual Number of Community College Transfers to Four-Year Institutions

  15. Systemwide MeasuresAnnual CCC Transfers to CSU

  16. Annual Vocational Awards • 2006-07 Total credit awards - 65,692 • Top Credit Awards • Nursing – 7,781 • Child Development/Early Education – 7,733 • Administration of Justice – 6,974 • Fire Technology – 3,367

  17. Increase in Personal Income

  19. College Report • College Indicators • College Profile • College Peer Groups

  20. College Indicators • Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • Progress and Achievement Rate • Percentage of students earning 30 or more units • 1st Fall to 2nd Fall Persistence Rate • Progress and Achievement: Workforce Development • Annual successful course completion rate for vocational courses • Pre-Collegiate Improvement • Annual successful course completion rate for basic skills courses • Basic Skills Improvement Rate • ESL Improvement Rate

  21. College Indicators • Examine over time • Three years of data • What are the trends • Compare to Peers • Gives context • Peer colleges are determined for each outcome measure • Take into account factors that are out of the college’s control • “Level the Playing Field” • Some of the adjustment models are better than others (i.e., they account for more variance)

  22. College Indicators • Compare to peers (continued) • For example: • Transfer Rates could be related to: • Level of academic preparation of students • Distance to nearest UC/CSU • Income levels of service areas • Percentage of older students • Model for SPAR • Pct age +25 Fall 2005 • Pct Basic Skills Students Fall 2005 • BA Plus Index

  23. Palomar CollegeStudent Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

  24. Palomar CollegeStudent Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer

  25. Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • SPAR (six year cohort) – Drop in most recent year; below our peer group average in most recent year • 30+ units (six year cohort) – Drop over previous year; below our peer group average in most recent year • Persistence – Increasing – Close to peer average

  26. Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • Something not quite right • 27 out of 37 in peer group experienced a decrease in their SPAR • System transfer rate decreased, system average SPAR decreased • Entering cohort (the denominator) • Outcome (the numerator) • Degrees/Certs – Remained constant/slight increase • Transfer Prepared/ Transfer Ready / Transfers – Numbers decreased with the largest decrease in Transfer counts

  27. Palomar CollegeSummary: Progress and Achievement: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • A closer look • “Internal” SPAR rates are more stable • 15% of students in the SPAR cohorts still attending the college after the six year tracking period • Over 100 students in most recent SPAR cohort transferred within 6 months of tracking period. • In general, students residing in CPPEN zip codes higher percentage achieve an outcome than our population at large • Follow up needed • CRCC – What role did it play? Why different over time? • Other factors

  29. Palomar CollegePre-Collegiate Improvement: Basic Skills and ESL

  30. Palomar CollegePre-Collegiate Improvement: Basic Skills and ESL

  31. College Report Summary • Student Progress and Achievement Rate: Degree/Certificate/Transfer • Investigating issues with SPAR and 30+units rates • Persistence rate increased over three years; close to peer group’s average • Student Progress and Achievement Rate: Vocational Occupational Workforce Development • Successful course completion rate is consistent over time; slightly above our peer group’s average

  32. College Report Summary • Basic Skills and ESL Improvement • Basic Skills Course Success Rate – Slight variation over time; below peer group’s average, however adjustment model not very good • Basic Skills Improvement Rate – Slight variation over time; same as peer group’s average • ESL Improvement Rate – Follow up with ESL department regarding course coding

  33. College Report Summary • College Self-Assessment (500 words) • Overview of district • Focused on the change in SPAR rate and the persistence/effort of our students to continue and complete their studies • Current college activities that will hopefully impact the success of our students

  34. Summary • ARCC Systemwide and College measures • ARCC annual report • Board of Trustees required to interact with the report within one year of its release • Integrated these measures into our institutional effectiveness review (you will see them again) • Review with SPC and will discuss as we update our Strategic Plan next year • One way of discussing and supporting Student Success
