College Accountability Performance Profile

College Accountability Program

In 2006, the Alabama Community College System implemented a new accountability initiative that provides each college with an annual reporting mechanism that will allow comparative documented progress tracking over time. Standards and performance indicators were used to create the College Accountability Performance Profile (CAPP), a uniform method of data collection addressing nine overall performance components with multiple indicators. Its goal is to increase recognition of the accomplishments of community colleges while providing specific areas of focus for improvement:

  • enrollment management
  • academic transfer
  • career/technical programs
  • health professions
  • developmental studies
  • learning resources and technology
  • student services
  • financial and physical resources
  • workforce development
  • adult education

Achieving this baseline is a significant step in our efforts toward greater accountability for two-year colleges in Alabama.
