Durham Tech uses State Performance and its own internal College-specific metrics to assess student performance, goal completion, and employment success. These metrics are designed as a tool to help the College analyze data on key student outcomes in ways that both provide a big-picture goal for improvement and a starting point for rigorous, internal program-level assessment. The metrics provide an outline for collecting comparative student outcome information relevant to completion, transfer and bachelor’s degree attainment, equitable access and success, learning, and post-graduation success in labor markets. The following metrics have been selected for annual review by the Board of Trustees.
