Methodology for Developing Institution-Set Standards:

The methodology for developing Institution-Set Standards requires analyzing the last 5 years of College data. Asthe institution-Set Standards are considered a baseline, the lowest of the last 5 years of indicators are recommended to College Council as the new Institution-Set Standard each year.
