Measures, Targets, and Related Indicators
An important part of The Plan is measuring progress toward becoming the best educated state by 2030. Six measures and accompanying targets are designed to guide the Council as it monitors progress toward achievement of the goals and strategies and implementation of initiatives. In addition, 15 related indicators serve as “building blocks” for the measures. The set of indicators is intended to be dynamic, thus creating opportunities to add new and revise existing ones during the years of plan implementation as appropriate.
Summary of Measures and Targets
By 2030, more Virginians will graduate with high quality credentials without excessive debt. The Commonwealth, through its public and private colleges and universities, will award 1.5 million degrees and workforce credentials, improve student success, and increase by 30 percent Virginia’s share of research expenditures.
