NCCCS Performance Measures for Student Success
CFCC Performance Results, 2012-2013
(Reported April 2014)

 The Performance Measures for Student Success Report is the North Carolina Community College System’s major accountability document. This annual performance report is based on data compiled from the previous year and serves to inform colleges and the public on the performance of our 58 community colleges.

In 2010, President Scott Ralls established a Performance Measures Committee to develop new performance based student success measures to go into effect in 2013.

In November 2011, the State Board formally approved the Performance Measures. These measures were then submitted to the General Assembly in March 2012 and later adopted in June 2012 through Section 8.5 of S.L. 2012‐142.

One of the outcomes of this committee 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. This utilization of baselines and goals is a departure from the System’s historical use of “standards.” These baselines and goals remain static for three years and will be reset in the 2016 Report.

Complete details for all 58 North Carolina Community Colleges can be found at the NCCCS Website.
