Key performance indicators (KPI)

Key performance indicators (KPI)

Since 1998, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) and the colleges of applied arts and technology have defined five Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure, in a consistent manner across the college system, college performance against Ministry stated goals and objectives. The five KPIs are: student satisfaction, graduate satisfaction, graduation rate, graduate employment rate and employer satisfaction. The KPI data are used by colleges to demonstrate their achievements and to identify where changes could be made to programs and services to better meet the needs of students. The Ministry also uses the data to advise and inform government about the colleges and in the planning and policy-making for the college system.
