Achievement Expectations Program
2015-2016 Academic Year-End Report

In August of 2013, our Achievement Expectations Program (AE) was launched.  The primary goal of this program is to evaluate the performance of all our chapters, and provide a community-wide picture of what is occurring.  The program has seven areas (Administrative, Academic, Community Service & Philanthropy, Chapter Development, Leadership, Community Building & Campus Engagement, and Risk Management). In each category we expect chapters to meet specific targets by completing and submitting documents regarding their chapter’s activities, and participating in community programming.  Overall there are ten categories on which each organization is reviewed. 

Key points and a baseline summary of the findings are as follows:

Key points -

  • We believe chapters are doing many of the things outlined in the Achievement Expectations, but simply not reporting the activities, thus creating gaps or incomplete areas.

  • Academically, our chapters are very successful.
  • The two areas of highest completed participation are Academics and Risk Management.

    Participation varied greatly by council affiliation.

  • There is significant need to improve overall participation.

  • We need assistance from advisors, consultants and inter/national officers to increase participation.

Summary

  • No chapters met expectations in all seven program areas.

    Two chapters met or exceeded expectations in eight of the ten subcategories.

  • Only one chapter did not meet expectations in any category.

  • No chapters met the expectation for Community Building and Campus Engagement.

  • 57 of 59 chapters met the expectation of a chapter GPA of 2.75 or better with 47 chapters exceeding expectations with a chapter GPA of 3.20 or better.

There will be changes coming for the 2016-2017 academic year.  Most are logistical updates, as we are splitting the evaluation period into two semesters instead of a whole academic year.  Each chapter will be asked to document their participation by the end of each semester.  This way, we can better track trends half-way through the year, reward and recognize positive outcomes more frequently, and provide a framework for discussion when we meet with chapter leaders.
