Central Oregon Community College is changing how it measures success.
In accordance with the Senate Bill 1581 which was passed by Oregon Legislature in March 2012, COCC has adopted a package of projected goals called achievement compacts.
An achievement compact is “a partnership agreement between the state and school district or other institution of public education that defines key measures of student success and sets targets for achievement,” according to a January 2012 release from the Oregon Education Investment Board.
All public k-12 schools and community colleges in Oregon were required to come up with a list goals they intended to meet in the 2012-13 school year.
“The state would not feel served if no one ever completed,” said Middleton.
It measures the amount of students who have made progress in remedial math and writing programs, according to Middleton, as well as students who pass national licensure exams, such as for nursing or massage therapy.
Community colleges are also measured by how well they are linked to other entities.
Completion shows the rate of students who are earning adult high school diplomas, certificates/Oregon transfer modules, associates degrees and transferring to four year universities.
Completion isn’t the only way to measure the success of an institution, according to Middleton, but it does need to be taken into account.
COCC President Jim Middleton described achievement compacts as a state and national push to look at outcomes, rather that just enrollment when it came to measuring the success of community college.“Community colleges have been focused on access above all things,” said Middleton.
