Student Achievement: Performance Measures for Student Success

The North Carolina Community College System Performance Measures for Student Success are Blue Ridge Community College’s major accountability document demonstrating Student Achievement.

This annual performance report is based on data compiled from the previous year and serves to inform the College and its public about its performance on a variety of student success factors. Student achievement is central to the College’s mission and Strategic Plan. The College collaborates with staff at the NC Community College System office to collect, report, and publish this information. Blue Ridge Community College’s Goals and Results are illustrated below.

Important Notes:

  1. Use of “baselines” and “goals” is employed for each measure. The use of consistent, statistically-defined baselines and goals promotes institutional transparency, simplicity, and objectivity.
  2. Based on three years of historical data (if available) for each measure, baselines were set two standard deviations below the system mean, and the goals were set one standard deviation above the system mean.
