Voluntary Framework for Accountability
The VFA is a principal accountability framework for community colleges with measures defined to encompass the full breadth of the community college mission and the diversity of students’ goals and educational experiences.
More than 60 community college leaders guided the 18-month development of the VFA, resulting in the release of more appropriate measures. The VFA gauges student progress and outcomes, including pre-collegiate preparation (such as developmental education), academic progress and momentum points, completion and transfer measures and workforce outcomes for career and technical education. The VFA measures are described in detail in the VFA Brochure.
The VFA Public Outcomes Report for KCC includes the data that participating colleges are required to report and share publicly.
