Benchmarking Data Report on Completion Rates

2017 Benchmarking Insight Reports

Use this report to compare key performance metrics, like completion rates and the % D, F, and W grades at the institution, division and department levels, to your peers.

APS’s founding members share the ambition of building the nation’s authoritative source of discipline level benchmarks of instructional costs, enrollment patterns, and faculty utilization—a quantitative MRI of program performance to complement mission and quality priorities in academic planning.

This Benchmarking Data Report on Course Completion is the second in a series of reports that will provide the APS membership with insightful, actionable information around key performance indicators. The data included in this report includes completion rates and the % D, F, and W grades at the institution, division and department levels, as well as analysis by academic year and course type. To enable you to compare your own institution’s course completion rates to similar peers, we divided the benchmarking dataset into four cohorts, largely based on enrollment and research activity.

Course completion, though not the only measure of student outcomes, can serve as one of many inputs in conversations about academic resource allocation. We encourage you to leverage this report in your academic planning conversations and contact your dedicated consultant with any questions.
