Student Achievement

ABAC utilizes assessment strategies to evaluate student success as it relates to the College’s mission statement.  As stated within its mission, “The College’s goal is to contribute to a better-educated Georgia.  To that end, the College engages in a comprehensive planning and assessment process enabling it to build upon its strengths and correct weaknesses.”  On an on-going basis, the College analyzes and publicly reports the following data:  enrollment, retention rates, graduation rates, degrees conferred, and licensing examination results for the College’s Associate of Science in Nursing degree program.  Using all of these indicators, ABAC can compare student performance and progress with that of its peer institutions.
