Final Recommendations of Performance Indicator Advisory Committee
set of measures reported by all institutions, and the mission-specific indicators will be related to each institution’s unique role and mission within the state. All three types of indicators will have a direct linkage to the goals of The Illinois Commitment. Figure 1 illustrates the indicator framework.
POLICY FRAMEWORK FOR PERFORMANCE INDICATORS RELATED
TO THE ILLINOIS COMMITMENT
Statewide Indicators Common Institutional Indicators Mission-Specific Institutional Indicators THE ILLINOIS COMMITMENT
The reporting for statewide indicators will focus on aggregate measures at the state and/or sector levels (i.e., state and/or sector totals or averages), while the reporting for common institutional indicators and mission-specific indicators will focus on the institution as the “unit of analysis.” IBHE staff will have reporting responsibility for the statewide indicators while institutions will have reporting responsibility for the common institutional indicators and mission-specific indicators. Both the common and mission-specific institutional indicators will be included in each institution’s annual results report (institutions were requested to identify a limited number of mission-specific performance indicators as part of their 2002 results report submission.) The common institutional indicators, along with the statewide indicators, will be integrated as part of the statewide results report presented to the IBHE each year.
At the same time, the implementation of these performance indicators likely will result in unforeseen challenges (technical and other), particularly in the early years of reporting. As such, it should be understood and accepted at the outset that this effort will require ongoing refinement as the IBHE and Illinois higher education community develop a base of experience with performance indicator reporting.
Performance Indicator Advisory Committee
A Performance Indicator Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from Illinois public universities, community colleges, and private institutions was established to provide guidance to the IBHE on the development of performance indicators. The charge to the Performance Indicators Advisory Committee is to provide guidance on the development and implementation of recommendations with regard to the “common” and statewide indicators for consideration by the IBHE. The Committee includes 12 representatives from Illinois public universities, community colleges, and private institutions, and is chaired by the IBHE Deputy Director for Planning and Budgeting.
