 AACC Statement on the Report of Committee on Measures of Student Success 


On behalf of more than 1,100 institutional members, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) commends the approval of the final report of the Department of Education’s (ED) Committee on Measures of Student Success (CMSS). The committee has executed a thorough and balanced analysis of the measurements that ED uses to evaluate community colleges. Among other things, it has found that ED’s metrics substantially misrepresent the performance and many of the achievements of community colleges. The committee’s report goes on to advance recommendations for both public and private actions to better capture the activity and impact of community colleges.
