Institution-Set Standards

Institution-set standards are the minimum level of performance set internally by institutions to meet educational quality and institutional effectiveness expectations. Standards reflect the "floor" or baseline levels of satisfactory performance of student learning and achievement below which the institution does not want to fall.

Institution-Set Standards include measures such as course success, course completion, persistence, transfer, degrees and certificates awarded, job earnings and placement. The Institution-Set Standards are reviewed annually so that the college community can learn about and discuss its performance to engage in continuous improvement. Reports of the Institution-Set Standards can be found at
