Outcomes Assessment in Higher Education
Views and Perspectives609
Outcomes Assessment in Higher Education focuses on assessing institutional quality and effectiveness, and responds to the increasing demand for greater accountability at all levels of institutional activity. It provides material that anyone in higher education dealing with outcomes assessment will find useful. The book presents the perspective of assessment associations and regional accrediting bodies, faculty members who have prepared plans for implementation of outcomes assessment, and librarians engaged in such assessment. Examples provide practical guidance in determining assessment options and how to proceed in establishing and applying assessment programs. This unique book provides a broad, cross-disciplinary perspective on the discussion of educational quality as reflected through outcomes assessment. Regardless of their position or source of employment, the message of the various authors is the same: outcomes assessment is here to stay.
