Metrics and Reporting
Maricopa Community Colleges is committed to responsibly meeting the lifelong educational needs of our diverse students and community. We also strive to be responsible stewards of the financial resources entrusted to us. We work tirelessly to maximize use of those resources in ways that create meaningful student learning opportunities and long-term benefits for our community. Key metrics have been developed that showcase the results of those investments and Maricopa Community Colleges' collaborative efforts. Ultimately, Maricopa Community Colleges' success is measured by the success of our students and the demonstrable benefits they provide society.
Tableau is an industry-leading data visualization and analytics software used by Maricopa Community Colleges. This software allows us to post powerful and interactive reports and dashboards online for access by district employees or the general public.
The future of Maricopa Community Colleges depends on accurate reporting. We can only continue to improve our educational services and meet the needs of our community if we mindfully assess our current performance status. We compile data yearly on students, programs, and courses across all 10 of our colleges to highlight key trends so we can be ahead of the curve in Arizona and nationally.
Maricopa Community Colleges strives for excellence and quality results for our students and our community. To assess these results, we have developed Institutional Effectiveness reporting -- key metrics that measure our effectiveness, growth, and areas for improvement. This reporting analyzes a broad range of data, including course success, university transfers, occupational certifications awarded, and community enrollment in non-credit classes. We also evaluate the economic impact of our colleges for the best return on investment for students, community, and taxpayers.
