Institutional Users
Related Data Reports and Inventories
  • Inventory of Approved Academic Programs: The inventory is updated when a new program is approved by the Council or the status of a current program changes.

  • State Accountability Reports (CPE): The annual Accountability Report highlights the system’s performance on the state-level metrics included in "Stronger by Degrees: A Strategic Agenda for Kentucky Postsecondary and Adult Education." For each metric, steps to improve performance are outlined, as well as activities planned for the coming year.

  • High School Feedback Reports (KCEWS): The purpose of this report is to provide comparative information about college going and college success for Kentucky’s public high school graduates. All information in this report is based only on the students who were identified as graduates. Alternative schools do not have high school feedback reports and are not included in any school’s high school feedback report.   

  • Postsecondary Feedback Reports (KCEWS): Each report provides in-depth data by institution about which degrees are pursued, the employment of graduates as well as information about students who go on to pursue advanced degrees, average wages for various degree categories and some insights into what happens to students who leave without a credential and do not continue their education elsewhere. 

  • Kentucky County Profiles 2014-15 (KCEWS): Contains a mixture of education, population, employment, and other data about each of Kentucky’s 120 counties, as well as our Area Development Districts, and Workforce Investment Boards.
