Description: This book helps colleges and universities respond to the increasing pressures for accountability by giving them the tools to demonstrate institutional effectiveness. The author is in a unique position to help his colleagues, since he comes at the topic from multiple perspectives, being both a leading practitioner and researcher: Assistant VP for Institutional Research and Planning at his university, director of a national research project on costs of instruction, as well as Vice Chair of an accreditation agency.While many books address the issue of assessing student learning outcomes, this book provides expert guidance for assessing and promoting institutional effectiveness in supporting student learning. The book's chapters cover every aspect from the overall context of the issue, through measures of effectiveness, to communicating with the public, and concludes with a guide to resources:1. The National Context for Greater Accountability2. Starting at the Beginning: The Institution's Position in the Admissions Market3. The Core Issue in Accountability: Developing Sensible Measures of Student Learning4. Developing Usable Measures of Student Satisfaction and Engagement5. Maximizing Human and Fiscal Resources in Support of the Teaching & Learning Process6. A Comparative Context for Examining Data on Teaching Loads and Instructional Costs7. Measuring Administrative Effectiveness8. Communicating Information About Institutional Effectiveness: Transparency and AccountabilityAppendix: Resources for Assessing Institutional Effectiveness
