The Outcomes of Higher Education.
Witmer, David R.
Unlike other organized social institutions, colleges and universities have paid little attention and seem to be little concerned with the long-term outcomes of their efforts, activities, and programs. No identifiable group of researchers has sustained an interest in the long-term student-based outcomes of institutional higher education. The field knows no unitary, well developed, validated methodology. Because it is the subject of limited and disconnected studies, it has no meaningful history. This review of the literature starts with studies under way at the turn of the century, examines in general chronological order the major studies and topics that, in turn, captured the attention of successive generations of researchers, administrators, and librarians, and concludes with a brief description of methodological problems.
