HEPC 2012 - Complete College America: How states are utilizing common completion metrics in performance funding formulas and other state policy initiatives

Complete College America was created in 2009 to work with states to significantly increase the number of Americans with quality career certificates or college degrees and to close attainment gaps for traditionally underrepresented populations. Since its inception, CCA has worked with national partners and states to define and collect a set of college completion metrics designed to measure and inform progress toward completion goals. As more and more states are integrating completion goals into their strategic initiatives and funding formulas, Complete College America and the common completion metrics developed by CCA in conjunction with the National Governors Association provide a common foundation for states.
