冰球突破豪华版 relies on its mission to drive its processes used to identify the College’s goals and outcomes for student achievement. The mission of 冰球突破豪华版 is to provide our region with accessible, 优质高等教育, 劳动力培训, and community programs to ensure an educated population and globally competitive workforce. 实现其使命, the College offers a variety of programs and services to meet the diverse needs of its 学生 and the community, 包括当地雇主的需求.
学院 伊娃luates student achievement by means of external and internal reviews by programmatic areas, 以及大学的总体目标. The 伊娃luation criteria supporting the College mission include enrollment, 保留, 毕业, 以及转移率, as well as national and state certification and licensing examination results.
As one of 23 colleges within the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), MECC receives benchmark data from the VCCS annually for each of the criteria used for 伊娃luating student achievement. The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) also publishes data via the SCHEV website that is specific to MECC and other Virginia educational institutions. MECC strives to exceed a threshold of achievement that is greater than national or state averages that are consistent with current trends in education.
与VCCS内的其他社区学院相比, MECC serves a high percentage of its regional population (3.2019- 2020年为1%，而2019- 2020年为2%.(VCCS为4%). 招生 data is monitored by headcount and full-time equivalency (FTE) of 学生 enrolled.
MECC maintains data related to the percentage of 学生 retained from Fall to Spring and Spring to Fall annually. 如学院战略计划所述, the College has established two goals related to 保留:
目标1:到2021年， 从秋天到春天 保留 rate for first-time, full-time curricular 学生 will be 90%.
目标2:到2021年， 坠落到坠落 保留 rate for first-time, full-time curricular 学生 will be 70%.
In addition to measuring the 保留 of first-time-full time curricular 学生, the College also monitors the 保留 rates of all of its 学生, including those who attend part-time and/or are not program-placed.
MECC maintains data related to the percentage of all attending 学生 who graduate. The results are bench-marked against the overall VCCS average. 例如, the 毕业 rate for MECC’s 2015 Cohort for first-time, 全日制项目招收学生41人.7%，而VCCS的平均值为28.6%.
MECC学生可以获得多个奖项, but is counted as a single graduate for reporting purposes.
艺术与科学副学士, 理学副学士, and the General Education Certificate degrees are designed for 学生 who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program. 整体, MECC’s transfer rate (transferred with 16 or more credits) is generally higher than the VCCS average.
MECC also collects data from the National Student Clearinghouse and the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) regarding the number of 学生 who graduate from MECC and are enrolled in another institution the following Fall term. 学院’s annual goal is to increase the number of its graduates continuing their education by 2% from the previous year.
国家/专业执照考试: MECC also considers student performance on state licensing examinations and/or professional certification examinations in its 伊娃luation of student achievement. Programs that prepare 学生 for licensure exams administered by state boards or professional commissions include Respiratory Therapy, 注册护士, 执业护理, 注册护理员, 放血, 急救医疗技术员(基础, 先进的, & 护理人员). These programs use licensing exam results as a third-party assessment of student achievement. Goals are set for licensure exam pass rates that meet or exceed the minimum thresholds set by the respective accrediting body. Actual pass rates of program graduates are used to track program performance during annual program reviews.
Additional goals and expected outcomes for student achievement are identified in MECC’s current 战略计划，以及它的 学生成功和招生管理计划. Both plans align with the objectives established by the Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System which focus broadly on connection, 条目(招生), 保留(进度)和完成. The strategic planning process begins with a review of system wide VCCS goals, 书院的使命, 愿景, 和值语句, and concludes with this revised strategic planning document, 旨在指导学院未来的发展方向. The VCCS mission drives both the establishment of VCCS strategic initiatives as well as the MECC mission and strategic goals. The process involves all members of the College community (faculty, 工作人员, 学生, 和管理员), 向社区征求意见, 利用制度有效性数据, and designing a plan which responds to changing community needs.
