Note:  Links to Institutional Ratings are Provided Below.

Links are provided here to institutional reports that were approved by CHE on June 7, 2002.  These reports are for the 2000-01 (Year 5) Performance Year.  In this year, institutions were rated for the first time based on standards developed for each sector of institutions based on available national or regional peer data, SC data, or data from other sources relevant to a measured indicator.  In the prior years, each institution was rated on benchmarks or standards specific to the institution.  A 3-point scoring scheme similar to that used in prior years was again used with the added possibility of earning an additional 0.5 points on scores of 1 or 2 to recognize individual institutional improvement.  As in each of the past years, this year saw the use of  revised measurement definitions for some indicators. 

Institutions performed well against the peer-based standards.  The overall average score was 82% (2.47 of 3) with 16 institutions performing in the Exceeds category and 17 in the Achieves category.

Note on Report Format:   The ratings for 2000-2001are posted as Adobe Acrobat files & will print in landscape format.  There are four pages for each institution.  The first page provides a summary of overall performance & details about the institution itself including the president's name and contact information as well as 'quick facts' including enrollment, type degrees offered, faculty and financial data.  The pages that follow provide indicator-by-indicator performance details including current and three years of historical data for each indicator.
