Transparency in California: Scorecard Released

California Community Colleges released its new accountability scorecard in early April. It is triggered by a new student success initiative and an effort to be transparent to the public. The new scorecard ( provides statewide and college specific results. The indicators cover completion, persistence, developmental education, non-credit and CTE. For more results, please visit the Region 2 website.

The challenge to the system is starkly laid out by the contrast of the 71% statewide completion rate for prepared students, defined as those who did not need developmental education, and the 41.1% rate of unprepared students. The overall completion rate of 49.5% reflects the fact that the majority of students place into developmental education classes.

The CTE indicator shows a completion rate of 55 % which is somewhat better than the overall college rate. The overall results show younger students are more likely to complete than older students and CTE minority students tend to have a higher success rate than minority students in the general curriculum.

The scorecard will help provide a clearer picture to the public and assist colleges in targeting improvement efforts. The next step in this process will be the release of a wage tracker in May. By matching student completers with wage records, the system will know how much those who have completed degrees and certificates are actually making on a program by program basis. The results released to the public will show wages on a statewide basis. Colleges will have access to the information so they can make a local analysis if they wish.
