Performance information

A key responsibility for the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is to monitor the performance of tertiary education providers.

The TEC publishes an annual tertiary education performance report to provide the key measures we use to assess performance across New Zealand’s tertiary education organisations. The reports also provide a historic view of institutional performance using already published performance information.

There are two types of performance information which provide details about:
