Institution-Set Standards (ACCJC)

Per ACCJC: "An institution-set standard is the identified level of performance determined by the institution to be acceptable. It is a measure the institution can and does use in assessing both institutional and programmatic performance in these areas (subject to exceptions for certain programs, which may have different standards as determined by the institution). It is a measure that will be assessed for reasonableness and effectiveness by peer external evaluators."

This number may differ from a performance improvement goal which an institution may aspire to meet.
