of our main areas of operation is in accountability reporting. The
State of California has established two major reporting systems for
college accountability. They are:
Student Success Scorecard: From the Student Success Scorecard website:
The Student Success Task Force (SSTF) recommended the implementation of
a new accountability framework, whose purpose is to provide
stakeholders with clear and concise information on key student progress
and success metrics in order to improve performance. The recommendation
specified that a scorecard be built on the existing reporting system,
the Accountability Reporting for the Community Colleges (ARCC).
Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI): From the IEPI website: The
goal of this initiative is to help advance California Community
Colleges’ institutional effectiveness, and in the process significantly
reduce the number of accreditation sanctions and audit issues, and most
importantly, enhance the system’s ability to serve students effectively.
An important focus of the grant is to draw on the exceptional expertise
and innovation from within the system in advancing best practices and
avoiding potential pitfalls.
