The Course Performance Report (CPR) is an annual report on the performance of UTS award courses.

The CPR aims to improve course quality by enhancing the University's use of course performance data.  It will also assist the University in its academic profile planning.

CPR and course accreditation

The CPR classifies courses in each faculty as:

  • commendable,
  • acceptable, or
  • of concern to be closely monitored.

Courses in this last group may need to be reviewed in more detail based on poor performance in one or more areas.  Results from the annual course review cycle are incorporated into the course reaccreditation process.

UTS Offshore co-ordinates the monitoring of offshore courses and arrangements.

The annual course review cycle is explained at the managing curriculum data website.

CPR indicators

The CPR is based on an agreed set of performance indicators and minimum standards, linked to the university KPIs. The indicators currently used to assess the performance of each course cover:

  • student demand for the course,
  • student load,
  • student pass and retention rates,
  • Student Feedback Survey (SFS) results,
  • average salary and employment rates for graduates of the course, and
  • results from the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) completed by recent graduates.

Data used in compiling the CPR are sourced from the Business Intelligence Portal.

CPR - Senior Executive Sponsorship

Senior Executive sponsorship of the CPR reporting and review process rests with the DVC (Teaching, Learning & Equity).
