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. Additionally, ACC tracks the IPEDS 8-year award rate, which can be seen here. ACC's action plans can be seen here
