The Relationships among Selected Characteristics of Student Outcomes Assessment Programs at American Two- and Four-Year Higher Education Institutions.
Womack, Noel C., IV
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships between attributes of faculty and administrative involvement, sources of internal and external funding, and characteristics of student outcomes assessment at U.S. two- and four-year higher education institutions. Data from selected items of the National Center for Postsecondary Improvement's Project 5.2 Inventory of Institutional Support for Student Assessment (ISSA) (M. Peterson, M. Einarson, C. Augustine, and D. Vaughan, 1999) were used to analyze the relationships among faculty involvement, administrative involvement, sources of funding, and best practices of comprehensive student outcomes assessment programs. Data were ISSA responses from 1,393 institutions. The study demonstrates that faculty and administrative involvement in student outcomes assessment, as well as diversity in funding sources, are significant predictors of the quality of student assessment programs in postsecondary institutions. Seven appendixes present instruments used in the study and some additional information about best practices and data collected. (Contains 60 tables and 85 references.) (SLD)
