A New Caveat: Let the Buyer Be Aware.
Jones, Larry G.
This paper identifies information to assist the prospective student in evaluating programs and institutions of higher education through the development of a reporting format, a "consumer's guide," that lends itself to easy analysis and interpretation. In addition to cost, retention, and placement success information usually suggested by consumer protection groups, the consumer's guide includes data for institutional and program evaluation, and focuses attention on the data necessary for student consumer admissions decisions.
