Using the NCHEMS Outcomes Structure to Test the Adequacy of Outcomes Lists: Tryout at a State University.
Endo, Jean J.; Lenning, Oscar T.
To aid institutions in identifying and using information about educational outcomes, the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) developed an "outcome structure," a new system for organizing outcomes and outcomes information for purposes of classification, analysis and decisionmaking. Preliminary tryout and review of this structure suggest that it has potential use in: stimulating people to realize the importance of having information about educational outcomes; stimulating people to think more systematically and concretely about what they are trying to accomplish in their institutions and programs (and for whom); helping institutional officials to identify educational needs, develop goals, translate goals into more concrete objectives, plan for outcomes, elevate the institution and its program; and improving communications with clientele and concerned publics. One of the projects used to try out the NCHEMS Outcomes Structure is reported. It was conducted in the winter of 1977 by the University of Colorado at Boulder. (Author/SPG)
