Institutional Effectiveness Metrics

The Office has developed a handful of Institutional Effectiveness metrics (IEMs) (sign-in required) to assist with program review, both comprehensive and annual, and new 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 completion and success rates).
