In order to ensure all programs are evaluated
fairly, the Support Task Force developed a set of common criteria that will be
used to evaluate programs in order to determine ranking into quintiles.
Support Program Criteria and Weight
Support program evaluation criteria and weight:
The Support Task Force established a ranking
system that will place all evaluated functions or programs into one of five
quintiles. Each quintile will contain an equal percentage of the total
functions or programs (20 percent). Each quintile will represent a rank within
the prioritization system.
Academic programs and support functions will not be compared. Programs will only be categorized in relation to other programs; functions will only be ranked in relation to other functions.
