THECB staff have determined that evaluating comparable quantitative measures may help institutions define program efficiency and effectiveness. An institutional review process may include an examination of data with emphasis on quantitative indicators of student success and program performance. At this time, instiutions will not be required to respond to the THECB based the information. Additionally the information will not be used to identify programs for closure or classify performance status. However, the Existing Program Performance Review (EPPR) data may be used in the staff evaluation of new program requests for doctoral programs, engineering programs, and programs costing over $2 million.
All data are derived from CBM reports and federal databases. Institutions are not responsible for providing additional information.
The data for all programs will be processed annually and posted on the THECB website: http://reports.thecb.state.tx.us/approot/epr/epr.htm
THECB staff will summarize statewide and Accountability Peer Group data by April of each year. The report will highlight selected programs on a rotating basis over a 10-year period.
Career Technical Certificates, Applied Associate & Baccalaureate Programs:
THECB staff developed a year-by-year schedule of 2-digit Classification of Instruction Programs (CIP) code. All programs within the 2-digit CIP code is displayed at the 4-digit level.
Academic Associate Programs:
As many institutions' data are not subdivided at the programmatic level, all data for academic associate programs is presented as a single unit.
