Achievement Indicator: Students progress in their programs of study
This page presents the acceptable thresholds and measures for each of the metrics used to assess the indicator of achievement.
Metric: First Year Retention Rate Comparison
Threshold: WSU’s first year retention rate will place it in the upper half of peer institutions.
Metric: Graduation Rate Comparison
Threshold: WSU’s six-year graduation rate will place it in the upper half of peer institutions.
Comparison of WSU Graduation Rate to Those of Peer Institutions (2005 Cohort)
Metric: Degrees Awarded
Threshold: WSU’s awarded degrees per 100 FTE students will place it in the upper half of in-state peer institutions.
Rationale for the performance metric: Degrees awarded per FTE student is a measure of timely achievement of degrees.
