The College Index, 2008/09-2014/15, contains a variety of quantitative data or indicators related to measuring institutional effectiveness. It can serve as a type of “report card” for the college.
The indicators are aligned with the five priorities articulated in the strategic planning document, Institutional Priorities 2013/14 to 2015/16. As indicators for institutional effectiveness, they help measure CSM's progress in addressing the priorities along with the objectives associated with those priorities.
Data become increasingly more meaningful as they are tracked over time: one is able to discern trends, comparing data elements to the original “baseline.” Each indicator has a profile associated with it that defines the methodology for measurement (accessible via links in the document); definitions include information about the span of time the indicator encompasses along with the source of the data.
New data will be posted as it becomes available.
