Note:  Links to Institutional Ratings are Provided Below.

Ratings for the public institutions were approved by CHE on June 6, 2002.  Institutions are rated first on their performance on individual indicators, and from those ratings, an overall score representing an average of scores on indicators is computed.  The overall score places institutions in one of five performance categories based on their overall performance.  Categories include “Substantially Exceeds,” Exceeds,” “Achieves,” Does Not Achieve,” and “Substantially Does Not Achieve.” Funding is allocated based on the performance category applied to the calculated need. 

For Year 6, institutions were rated on a reduced set of indicators (13 or 14) that were selected for each sector to represent those most closely tied to mission.  The reduced set of indicators better focuses the system and reduces redundancy among the indicators. In reducing the number of measures impacting institutional scores, several indicator definitions were revised.  This year, for the first time, one institution, the Medical University of SC, was rated in the Substantially Exceeds Category.  As for the other institutions, 14 institutions performed in the Exceeds category and 18 in the Achieves category.  The overall average score of institutions was 2.51 of 3 (84%.)

Note on Report Format:  The ratings are posted as Adobe Acrobat files and will print in landscape format. There are four pages for each institution.  The first page provides a summary of overall performance and details about the institution itself including 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.
