Assessing the Generic Outcomes of College: Selections from Assessment Measures

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Jul 20, 2011 - Education - 81 pages
What does college teach, really? As demands for accountability intensify, meaningful measurement of broad college outcomes becomes increasingly important. Here, you'll take a journey through the history of assessment instruments, starting with the creation of the first general outcomes assessment tools in the 1980s. You'll follow the evolution of the tools, writing and critical thinking, and finally the concept of value-added analysis, an appealing but elusive goal for assessors.
