National & International Projects on Accountability and Higher Education Outcomes

From the American Council on Education

Searchable Database of Resources on Measuring Quality

A web resource center on measuring quality in higher education from the Association for Institutional Research (AIR), in partnership with the American Council on Education (ACE) Center for Policy Analysis and the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), is now available.

The website provides information on assessment instruments and other resources in a format that allows keyword and topical searches.

This new tool is an update and expansion of the ACE/AIR monograph, Measuring Quality: Surveys and Other Assessments of College Quality (Borden & Owens, 2001).

In response to increased interest on the part of policy makers, higher education leaders, and the general public, a number of initiatives are underway that define, measure, or report on the outcomes of higher education. To help members of the higher education community keep track of these new developments, the ACE Center for Policy Analysis has produced this online resource, profiling the following major accountability and learning outcome initiatives occurring in the United States and abroad:

1. Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes (AHELO)

2. Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Initiative

3. National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA)

4. New Leadership Alliance for Student Learning and Accountability

5. Pathways Construction Project (Higher Learning Commission)

6. Tuning USA

7. University and College Accountability Network (U-CAN)

8. Rising to the Challenge

9. Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA)
