Outcome Measures and Procedures Manual. Field Review Edition. Technical Report 70.
Micek, Sidney S.; And Others
This document defines a wide range of measures of the outcomes (results or impacts) of postsecondary education institutions and their programs and suggests procedures for acquiring the data needed for each measure. The outcome measures described are ones identified by a survey of institutional and state-level decision makers as providing the information most needed about the impacts of postsecondary education. The procedures presented are suggested methods for collection of data on each particular outcome measure, often with several alternatives suggested. The procedures are not all-inclusive, but rather are designed to suggest a starting point for institutions wishing to collect the data. Most procedures are relatively straight-forward, relying primarily on two methods of data collection: (1) a questionnaire administered to those receiving the benefits of postsecondary education or to those who can determine how many persons received certain benefits, and (2) searches of institutional records. The manual has been designed so that each outcome measure and its associated data collection procedures are presented separately. (Author/JMF)
