University scores effective and adaptable, says report

The performance indicators applied to universities since 1999 have received a positive evaluation.

Universities submit data on the indicators to the Higher Education Statistics Agency every year. Put in place following a government-commissioned report by Ronald Dearing, then chancellor of the University of Nottingham, the indicators cover widening participation, non-continuation, employment outcomes and research.

The measures are working well and should be retained throughout the UK, according to a report by the Institute for Employment Studies and the National Centre for Social Research, commissioned by the Performance Indicators Steering Group of the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
