Performance Measurement Report
The Performance Measurement Reporting System (PMRS) is designed to fill the DHE’s statutory obligation to “promote accountability for effective management and stewardship of public funds and to achieve and demonstrate measurable educational outcomes” (MGL, Chapter 15a, Section 7). The PMRS provides a comprehensive examination of the performance of each of Massachusetts’ community colleges and state universities on a set of key indicators focused on Access & Affordability, Student Success & Completion, Workforce Alignment and Fiscal Stewardship. This tool is intended to prompt constructive conversations about performance and accountability between and among DHE/BHE, the campuses, boards of trustees, legislators and others, and ultimately to contribute to the discovery of insights that point to actions that lead to results—and a better public higher education system for the Commonwealth.
Detailed technical notes are available here.
