Council of Graduate Schools in the U.S., Washington, DC.; Commission on Higher Education, Philadelphia, PA. Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.; Maryland Univ., College Park. Center of Adult Education.
This conference was designed to explore the many issues concerned with quality and assessment at the master's level. Areas covered included needs and objectives, curriculum design and delivery, the meaning of quality, extant standards of quality for accreditation, definitions of assessment and methods of assessment for master's programs. Over two hundred individuals participated in the conference and this volume is to some extent a reflection of all discussions and comments. It contains the texts of invited papers as well as available reports of recorders who summarized all panel sessions. Three papers presented on the last day attempt to provide an overall summary of the conference. They are "Status of the Master's Degree Program" by K. D. Stewart, "What Responses are We Making?: Quality Assessments of the Quality of Master's Programs" by J. Epstein, and "What Does the Future Hold?" by D. A. Mankin and M. A. Grodsky. (RL)
