Institutional Data

Institutional Set Standards

The college strives for success in achievement and learning outcomes of the students in various measures of student attainment. Institutional set standards are established for completion, awards and transfer based on five year averages set at 95% of the average. The methodology of all institutional set standards is reaffirmed at the college annual planning retreat.

Allan Hancock assesses both course completion and success rates as part of the Institutional Set Standards. Completion rates over the five-year span analyzed have ranged between 86 and 89%, with the low in fall 2010. Similarly, course success rates have varied by 3 percentage points between 68 and 71% with a low in fall 2010. The 2010-11 academic year happened to coincide with peak enrollments and FTES for the College as enrollments were growing in both returning and displaced workers and recent high school graduates increasingly denied access to four-year institutions out of high school. AHC reports both total degrees and certificates as well as unduplicated (headcount) counts because many students earn multiple awards; reporting unduplicated counts provides a more accurate assessment of how many students are actually successful. Trends in degrees and certificates reflect enrollment patterns as well as the addition and discontinuance of degrees available. For example, the drop in 2009-10 in degrees is accounted for by a phasing out of “Liberal Arts” degrees, later replaced by Liberal Arts – Non Transfer and Liberal Arts – Transfer. The addition of ADTs will continue to add to the completion data. As a result of section reductions and scaling back, the number of students earning a degree or certificate hit a low in 2011-12, but have grown considerably since then (by 29% in certificates and 23% in degrees). Transfer counts show an increase from the low in 2010, but given AHCs lack of proximity to a CSU (Cal Poly does not participate in transfer agreements), students are greatly impacted by cost and geography..
