Momentum Points Background
18
 Ensuring long-term economic growth & prosperity
 Community colleges enroll half of students in Texas
 Texas must award an additional 46,000 credentials
annually by 2015 – 28% increase
 Strengthen efforts in increasing student career and
academic readiness, and increase progress and
achievement of milestones by all students
Momentum Points Model
19
 Based on research by Teachers College at Columbia University
 Model measures performance in a way to provide incentives to
community colleges
 Milestones are measurable attainments correlated with a student’s
momentum through a program
 Milestone concept – holds community colleges accountable for
student success
 Each Metric is directly aligned with the core mission of community
colleges – from least prepared to the most college ready students
Momentum Points Metric
20
 College Readiness -
2 points
(1 for math, 1 for reading/writing)
 1st College Level Math Course -
1 point
 15 Credits Completed –
1 point
 30 Credits Completed –
1 point
 Transfer w/15 hours or more –
2 points
 Degree/Certificate earned –

THECB vs. Community College Proposal
21
 THECB – Allocate 90% of formula based on
enrollment and allocate 10% of formula based on
momentum points; all 50 community colleges
compete for the 10%; implement in FY 2013
 Community Colleges – Given current budget crisis
do not implement at this time; use FY 2012 to
establish a baseline; measure movement against
institution.

The Future
24
 Learning
 Quality
 Efficiency
Focus
25
Create and nurture a learning-centered environment in
which students, faculty, staff, and the community atlarge can achieve their greatest potential.
 Identify and serve the learning needs of the community
(Learning)
 Cultivate excellence in teaching, instructional delivery,
student services, and administrative support (Quality)
 Provide reliable and sustainable resources and funding
for the college (Efficiency)
Why and How
26
You might wonder what does learning, quality, and
efficiency have to do with future funding?
We are ahead of the curve when it comes to
performance measures. All of our work with post
SACS accreditation and Achieving the Dream has
placed us in an excellent position to move forward in
this new era of performance funding and shrinking
resources.
Our Goal & Strategy
27
Our goal is not to use a broad brush to change,
improve or cut programs and cost, but to use a fine
detailed brush to make these changes.
Our goal to improve learning and quality is centered
on the students and their needs. This “hedgehog”
focus will result in the efficiencies required to keep
moving this institution forward.
Funding - Efficiency

Whether you prevail or fail
depends more on what you do to
yourself than on what the world
does to you.
Success
31
 Performance funding/Momentum points – reward
and reinforce what we have already begun
 Focus
 Students
 Student Learning Outcomes
 Improving Student Services
Focus = Success

Conclusion
33
Greatness is not a function of
circumstance.
Greatness is largely a matter of
conscious choice, and discipline.
