Status Report

Check with Julie B but I think the BoG approved this in July.

Whereas, The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges adopted resolution 14.01 S12[1] that requested changes to Title 5 to include a noncredit progress indicator of Satisfactory Progress (SP) at its Spring 2012 session;

Whereas, The Chancellor’s Office Scorecard currently voids all data submitted for noncredit progress, thus indicating zero achievement and success;

Whereas, The Chancellor’s Office currently lacks the staff to facilitate the requested Title 5 change; and

Whereas, The Chancellor’s Office is capable of collecting noncredit progress indicators, and all other progress indicators (A, B, C, D, F, P and NP) are currently defined in Title 5 for credit and noncredit courses (§55021/§55023);

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge local senates to recommend policies that allow their colleges to begin the practice of assigning progress indicators to all noncredit curriculum; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the Chancellor’s Office to elevate the priority of the requested Title 5 change to allow for the use of Satisfactory Progress (SP) as a viable noncredit progress indicator.
