A-B Tech Achieves Exceptional Status

ASHEVILLE, NC – A-B Tech was one of 11 community colleges in the state achieving Exceptional status on the North Carolina Community College System’s accountability measures.

The NCCCS measures colleges’ performance in eight core areas using the most recently available data. Accountability measures for North Carolina’s 58 community colleges based on 2007-08 academic year data confirm that community college students found success in college readiness, workforce preparedness and as college transfers.

To obtain Exceptional status, a college must meet or exceed all eight system standards. They must also meet the performance goals of achieving the college performance rates of students who began in, rather than transferred into, the UNC System and attaining at least a 70 percent passing rate for students who sit for a licensure or certification exam for the first time.
