The assessment of student success outcomes should facilitate data-informed decision-making at all levels of an institution.  For over a decade, National Community College Benchmark Project (NCCBP) data have been central to South Florida State College’s (SFSC) Core Indicators of Effectiveness and its overall institutional effectiveness process.  This presentation will discuss how NCCBP data were incorporated into the College’s Core Indicators of Effectiveness and serve as a mechanism to monitor measurable goals and student achievement outcomes.  Participants will also be shown how faculty and staff may use NCCBP data to evaluate a college’s effectiveness and determine the need for potential student success interventions.
