Best Practices in Outcomes Assessment.
Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Philadelphia, PA.
This report on best practices in outcomes assessment contains two parts: "Institutional Resources" and "Other Resources." Commission staff and consultants have selected several exemplary comprehensive outcomes assessment plans or components of plans from institutions that recently completed their decennial evaluations and from periodic review reports submitted in the fifth year of the accreditation cycle or other special reports. For each institution there is an institutional description, an outcomes assessment description, and a contact person. Plans are grouped as comprehensive, academic assessment, general education plans, and student affairs plans. Part B, "Other Resources," recommends resources on outcome assessment in these categories: (1) "What Is Assessment? Dictionaries, Glossaries, and Statements"; (2) "Why Assess?"; (3) "How To Assess Well: Guidelines and Standards"; (4) "Identifying Learning Outcomes and Other Goals and Objectives"; (5) "Assessment Tools"; (6) "Assessment of Specific Skills"; (7) "For More Information."
