In accordance with ACCJC requirements, the college has adopted an institutional standard for successful course completion at or above 60%

Institutional Set Standards for ACCJC Annual Report - 2013

a.  If course success rates fall below 60%, what are the department’s plans to bring course success rates up to this level?

b.  Are success rates by ethnicity at or above 60%? If not, what are the department’s plans to bring the success rates of the ethnic group(s) up to this level?

c. What resources may you need to bring the success rates of the program or ethnic group(s) up to the institutional standard?

There was a discussion on if the questions should stay separate or should be reworded into one sentence. The members agreed that the questions should remain separated.

Bryant stated that these questions would be implemented into TracDat by the end of fall quarter so that department chairs can start working on APRU as soon as January.
