Criteria Used to Evaluate Student Success
Student achievement in relation to the University of Miami’s mission is evaluated using a variety of methods, including graduation rates, retention rates, time to degree, scores on licensing and certification examinations, assessment of General Education Requirements, job placement and graduate school acceptance, prestigious graduate fellowships, and results from graduating student surveys. Some of these measures (i.e., graduation rates and retention rates) are identified as key metrics in the University’s strategic plan and are tracked annually on a Strategic Plan Scorecard that is shared with the University’s Board of Trustees each spring. Each measure on the Scorecard has a goal for 2020 that is equal to the average of 10 private universities in the Association of American Universities closest to UM in U.S. News & World Report rankings at the time the strategic plan was adopted. Pass rates for licensing and certification examinations are tracked by the relevant schools, job placements for graduate students are tracked by graduate programs as part of their graduate program review, and placement rates for undergraduates are tracked centrally as well as by some of the schools. Results from surveys of graduating students are shared with senior leadership and school-level data are shared with deans. When available, these measures are compared with relevant peer data. All of these analyses help inform decisions that lead to the improvements the University has experienced in its metrics of student success.
