Oregon Pathways

PCC reports progress data for the fall cohort of entering first time in college students as part of the Oregon Pathways Project.  Each cohort is tracked through a set of one-year key performance indicators (KPIs) called Early Momentum Metrics.  These cohorts and KPIs are similar but not identical to PCC’s defined YESS momentum points and those in the Postsecondary Data Partnership.

Ten cohorts of PCC’s Oregon Pathways KPIs disaggregated by race/ethnicity are displayed in the following dashboards with KPI definitions listed below each.
