Student Success Scorecard (formerly ARCC Report)
In its commitment to increase transfer and degree and certificate attainment, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors has established a performance measurement system that tracks student success at all 112 community colleges. This scorecard represents an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability on student progress and success metrics in public higher education in the United States. The data available in this scorecard tell how well colleges are doing in remedial instruction, job training programs, retention of students and graduation and completion rates. With data reported by gender, age and ethnicity, colleges, students and the public can also better determine if colleges are narrowing achievement gaps, which is vitally important for our students and our state's economy.
The California Community College Chancellor's Office is currently implementing the framework set forth by AB 1417. The implementation of AB 1417 is known as Accountability Reporting for the Community Colleges (ARCC). These reports are required for all community colleges and are calculated by the Chancellor's Office.
The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), is a series of data submission surveys, conducted annually, by the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES). Every college, university, technical and vocational institution that participates in federal student financial aid must participate in IPEDS. The collected information provides basic data needed to describe and analyze tends in postsecondary education throughout the country.
