Student Outcomes

The Office of Research is pleased to present the Student Success Data Dashboard. This dashboard provides a comprehensive collection of student outcomes metrics in five key areas:

  • developmental to college progress;
  • course success;
  • persistence;
  • completion;
  • transfer; and
  • other pertinent data.

The data results from Oakton's participation in the National Community College Benchmarking Project, a compendium of benchmarks that allows nearly 300 community colleges to measure their performance against their peers. The dashboard allows us to benchmark our performance internally over time, externally to Oakton's local peer institutions (College of DuPage, College of Lake County, Moraine Valley Community College, Triton College, and Harper College, and externally to all other community colleges that participate in NCCBP. The Student Success Data Dashboard increases the transparency of student outcomes at Oakton and allows us to monitor our progress on goals to improve student success.
