Key Performance Indicators

The table below contains the selected Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for ACC for 2018-2019. KPIs are updated each year and modeled after the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) Success Point system.

A threshold is set in ACC's Strategic Plan with an expected growth compared to the prior year. The 3-year rolling average is provided for further comparison. Notes are provided where relevant. Prior year KPIs can be seen here and prior year action plans can be seen here. Additionally, ACC tracks the IPEDS 8-year award rate, which can be seen here. ACC's action plans can be seen here
