Isothermal Community College tracks student achievement through state performance measures and comparisons to national completion rates. The information below provides recent data on student achievement.
The Performance Measures for Student Success Report is the North Carolina Community College System's (NCCCS) major accountability document. This annual performance report is based on data compiled from the previous year and serves to inform colleges and the public on the performance of all North Carolina community colleges. Isothermal Community College is committed to using this system to continuously monitor, evaluate, and improve the quality of programs offered in Rutherford and Polk counties.
The 2020 performance measures for student success reports that the college was above the standard baseline level on all measures and above the state average on four of these measures and of those, the college measured excellent in the state for English credit success, first-year progression, and success of its students on college transfer.
The National Student Clearinghouse Completions Benchmark Report provides an institution-level view of student completion rates benchmarked to the analysis published in the national signature report on completions. The report draws on the Clearinghouse's national coverage of enrollment and awarded education credentials to explore the six-year outcomes of a cohort of first-time-in-college degree-seeking students, who started in fall 2013.
The tables below show Isothermal data compared to national benchmarks for other two-year institutions. The data is disaggregated by gender and race as the College aims to recognize gaps in services to minority populations.
