Institution Set Standards
What are Institution-Set Standards and Stretch Goals?
Institution-set standards and stretch goals are student achievement metrics that the ACCJC expects colleges to review and evaluate on an annual basis. These institution-set standards and stretch goals are submitted annually to the ACCJC by the College each spring as a part of an annual report. The ACCJC provides the following definitions for these metrics:
Institution-Set Standard Definition:
A standard that the College strives to not fall below and evaluates on an annual basis. When a college does not meet a set standard, it establishes and implements plans for improvement. Institution-set standards are established for: course success rates, certificate completion (certificates above 16 units), degree completion, transfer, licensure exam pass rates (for those programs for which students must pass a licensure exam to work in their field of study), and employment rates for students completing certificate programs and CTE degrees.
Stretch Goal Definition: An aspirational goal that the College strives to achieve. Stretch goals are established for: course success rates, certificate completion (certificates above 16 units), degree completion, and transfer.
