Institutional Effectiveness Dashboard

2020 Targets

Institutional effectiveness is a process that involves the entire institution in the assessment of the College’s performance on key indicators, referred to as Institutional Effectiveness Measures (IEMs). These measures align with the mission and vision of Harper College as well as the needs and expectations of the College’s internal and external stakeholders. Harper’s IEMs include five student success measures and five institutional success measures. Each of these measures contains one or more indicators. In FY2017, historical data were examined In order to select recommended targets for the IEMs. Current institutional priorities and initiatives also guided the development of these targets.

Recommended targets were set using a framework that includes three categories:

  • Expected: If we continue on our current path, this target represents the expected outcome.
  • Improvement: A challenging, yet attainable target that can be achieved through increased effort.
  • Stretch: A target achieved only if the measure is prioritized and institutional focus is placed on dramatic improvement.

Long-term targets have been set for each of the 25 indicators and progress toward the targets are displayed in the following dashboard. Progress on the IEM targets is identified as:

  • In Progress - Needs Attention: This status indicates that based on current and trend data additional attention and effort is needed if the target is to be achieved by 2020.
  • In Progress - On Target: This status indicates that based on current and trend data it is projected that the 2020 target will be met.
  • Target Achieved: This status will not be selected until 2020 data is available.

Actual data can be obtained by clicking on the desired indicator.
