News & Announcements:
2013 Student Success Scorecard: The Chancellor's Office recently released Merced College's 2013 Student Success Scorecard; the Scorecard is formerly known as the Accountability Reporting for Community Colleges (ARCC). Below, a table comparing 2002-03 and 2006-07 figures, such as completion and persistence rates, is available. The Scorecard also provides details regarding key metrics, including demographics, which helps Merced College identify areas for further investigation and improvement.
Institutional Effectiveness Metrics: The Office has developed a handful of Institutional Effectiveness (IE) metrics to assist with program review, both comprehensive and annual, and faculty prioritization requests. They are listed under three group types: 1) Credit Productivity (including courses filled, FTEF, FTES, WSCH); 2) Student Demographics (including age, gender, race/ethnicity); and 3) Student Success (including awards/certificates earned, course retention and success rates). Access the IE metrics by visiting OGIR's MC4ME site (log-in required).

Six-Year Quick Facts: The District's 2006-07 to 2011-12 Quick Facts document is available. It contains a six-year look at demographics, awards, and FTES trends.
The Institutional Research Calendar: The Office's Institutional Research Calendar is now available for review here. The Calendar informs stakeholders on the institutional research planning on an annual basis. This was approved by the Committee for Institutional Research Oversight (CIRO) in May, 2013.
