The Non-Traditional College: How to Determine Minimum Standards.
Arnstein, George E.
Indicators of the quality of a nontraditional college are difficult to define since the outputs of nontraditional education differ from traditional outputs. This document assesses some of the possible indicators, including accreditation status; state charters, licenses, and approvals; the college catalogue listing of faculty and indication of institutional goals; what to look for at site visits; attrition and placement; accuracy of catalog; faculty organization and participation; student government and organization; and the quality and availability of dissertations. The cumulative impact of each of these factors may be helpful in assessing institutional quality. (MJM)
