Student Achievement: NCCCS Performance Measures

Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (CCC&TI) maintains accountability within the North Carolina Community College System to benchmark ourselves against other community colleges within the state. The College monitors student progress in basic skills, success rates in college-level English, success rates in college-level math, student progression in the first year, student completion, licensure and certification pass rate, and success in college transfer. For each of the seven measures, CCC&TI’s goal is to meet excellence level as determined each year by the System. These summary measures, and more detailed comparative data, may be found on the North Carolina Community College System’s (NCCCS) State Performance Measures (PM) Dashboard.
