North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) Performance Measures for Student Success
The Performance Measures for Student Success Report is the North Carolina Community College System’s major accountability document. This annual performance report is based on data compiled from the previous year and serves to inform 58 community colleges and the public on their performances. Seven performance-based measures of student success are used to compare institutional success to established system-wide baseline and excellence levels.

    • Basic Skills Student Progress
    • Student Success Rate in College-Level English Courses
    • Student Success Rate in College-Level Math Courses
    • First Year Progression
    • Curriculum Student Completion
    • Licensure and Certification Passing Rate
    • College Transfer Performance

In 2016, the State Board of Community Colleges approved and the General Assembly adopted through Section 10.0 of S.L.2016-94 the revised Performance Measures for Student Success. The table below describes the new performance measures and includes Carteret Community College’s results.
