Durham Tech Performance Status

In 2010, NCCCS President Scott Ralls established a Performance Measures Committee to develop new performance-based student success measures to go into effect in 2013. While some of the names of the performance measures may resemble those that have been adopted in the past, the descriptions and methodologies highlight distinct improvements including making the measures closely aligned with key initiatives, more focused on student successes, more objective, uniform across colleges, more valid and reliable, and more cohort-based in order to track student success.

One of the outcomes was the establishment of system-wide “baselines” and “goals” for each measure. The committee recommended using consistent, statistically-defined baselines and goals to promote transparency, simplicity, and objectivity. Based on three years of data (where available) for each measure, baselines are initially set two standard deviations below the system mean, and the goals are initially set one standard deviation above the system mean. These baselines and goals are reset every three years. This utilization of baselines and goals is a departure from the System’s historical use of “standards.”

If you have any questions about the new Performance Measures, please contact Dr. Teri Kaasa, Director of Research, Evaluation, Assessment and Planning at kaasat@durhamtech.edu or 919-536-7249, ext. 2801.
