School and Student Characteristics and Student Achievement Outcomes / FY 2016 Commission Activities
One of the many ways that ACCSC verifies the effectiveness of its work and that of the programs and services offered by ACCSC-accredited institutions is through detailed analysis of school characteristics and performance data. The Commission recently completed its analysis of the 2015 Annual Report and found once again that its accredited institutions continue to demonstrate significant institutional and student success through their rates of student graduation and graduate employment attainment.
These data are important indicators and are used by ACCSC to better understand its accredited institutions and the trends associated with career education, as well as to develop the Commission’s accountability standards. The information contained in the School
and Student Characteristics and Student Achievement Outcomes / FY 2016 Commission Activities Report is a summary of the key data points from the 2015 ACCSC Annual Report and provides detailed information pertaining to ACCSC school characteristics, student characteristics, program characteristics, and student achievement rates and trends. Additionally, ACCSC is including a summary of the Commission’s accreditation activities from July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016 for review and consideration.
