Establishing Performance Indicators to Assess Progress Toward Meeting the Goals of The Illinois Commitment: Final Recommendations (Action)
This report presents the final recommendations of the Illinois Board of Higher Education's Performance Indicator Advisory Committee. The Committee was established in January 2002 to provide guidance on the development of performance indicators to assess progress toward meeting the goals of "The Illinois Commitment." Preliminary recommendations on a set of potential indicators were presented in August 2002; subsequently, the Advisory Committee gathered public input from various groups and individuals throughout the state. The recommendations presented in this report reflect that input.

Three levels of indicators are recommended: statewide indicators related to Illinois' overall system of higher education, common indicators for all institutions, and mission-specific indicators related to each institution's unique role and mission. (Presentation by Dan Layzell)
