boards. The results of the TSA for each program are reviewed yearly to make improvements
for student success. For example, the NCLEX pass rate for Practical Nursing students is 97%
and for Registered Nursing Students is 86%. Student outcomes are also reviewed to ensure
that the outcomes are aligned to the expectation of industry standards. TSA results are
available to faculty to plan for changes that will raise scores or improve performance on a
yearly basis.
The institution regularly documents and evaluates its cycle of planning, practices, resource
allocation, application of institutional capacity, and assessment of results to ensure their
adequacy, alignment, and effectiveness. Funding is tied to these measures and necessary
changes are made, as necessary, for improvement.
5.B.2 Regular Evaluation and Assessment of Planning Cycle, Practices, Resource
Allocation, and Institutional Capacity
EITC documents and evaluates all programs on a yearly basis via program reviews. Each
program assesses current enrollment and waiting lists for the up-coming year. Industry
hiring projections and DOL forecasts are also considered for future employment. Projections
are made for a 10 year growth cycle and budgets are closely monitored to meet projected
employment, both locally and regionally. The expectation of a family living wage for
program graduates is also considered in the equation to increase or decrease the student
applicants. One measure of success for each program is placement of students in careers for
which they received training at EITC. Each technical program at EITC performs a program
review on a (three year) cycle where success indicators include student feedback, advisory
committee recommendations, TSA results, student completion rates and industry
placements - all reviewed through the lens of program outcomes.
EITC program faculty meet regularly with state-wide colleagues from the additional five
professional technical colleges in Idaho to share best practices, industry trends, evaluation
methods and exploration of statewide partnership opportunities. EITC evaluates
performance annually by measuring nine Performance Indicators and report those
measurements to the State of Idaho Division of Financial Management. The Performance
Indicators are established by the Idaho SBOE and parallel the outcomes established by EITC.
The College reports to the Integrated Postsecondary Educational Data System (IPEDS) and
provides public information through Gainful Employment data on EITC’s website.
Two programs are selected each year to present an in-depth review of their program to the
Instructional Advisory Committee (IAC). The IAC then makes recommendations for
improvement, or comments on overall approval of adequacy and effectiveness.
EITC monitors its internal and external environments to identify current and emerging
patterns, trends, and expectations. Through the governance system, findings are used to
assess strategic position; define future directions; and review and revise, as necessary,
