Washington State Quality Assurance
Washington State Quality Assurance Student Achievement Initiative
The Student Achievement Initiative is a new performance funding system for community and technical colleges that represents a shift from funding entirely for enrollment inputs to also funding meaningful outcomes. The initiative is intended to:
- Improve public accountability by more accurately describing what students achieve from attending our colleges each year.
- Provide financial incentives to colleges for increasing the levels of achievement attained by their students.
