This is a report on the measurements of institutional effectiveness indicators at Northern Virginia Community College from 1992 to 1997. The report looks at the following indicators: (1) persistence rate of first-time students; (2) persistence rate of full-time first-time students; (3) persistence rate of part-time first-time students; (4) completion rate of first-time program placed students; (5) student primary goal attainment; (6) placement rate of graduates in degree related jobs; (7) Cohen measure of transfer; (8) transfer rate of NVCC students to selected institutions; (9) average grade point average (GPA) of NVCC students at senior institutions; and (10) success rate of developmental students in college-level courses. Results showed that: (1) on the average approximately 31% of all first-time students returned to NVCC the next year; (2) full-time students were more likely to return than part-time students; (3) student completion rate of a degree program increased yearly from 8% in 1993 to 11% in 1997; (4) approximately 73% of NVCC developmental students are successful in passing college-level courses; (5) over 90% of graduate survey respondents report that they attained primary goal at NVCC; and (6) approximately 41% of surveyed graduates reported being placed in a degree-related job. According to Cohen's measure of transfer, 23% of the NVCC students who entered in fall 1995 earned at least 12 credits and transferred to a four-year institute. The NVCC transfer rate was consistent with the statewide community college system transfer rate. The average GPA of NVCC students at four-year institutions was 2.6. The report includes the mission of NVCC. (Contains 20 tables.) (MKF)
