An Introduction to the Identification and Uses of Higher Education Outcome Information.
Micek, Sidney S.; Wallhaus, Robert A.
This document describes the development of an inventory of higher education outcome variables and measures. The intent of the inventory is to assist different kinds and levels of decisionmakers in communicating the desired and actual outcomes of instructional as well as research and public service activities. Two guidelines for using the inventory have been developed for (1) translating broad, vague goals into measurable terms and (2) developing priority lists of desired outcomes that can aid in choosing among alternative courses of action.
