Effective Practices: The Role of Accreditation in Student Achievement
Council for Higher Education Accreditation
The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) has focused on the role of accreditation in student achievement since the publication of its 2001 "Accreditation and Student Learning Outcomes: A Proposed Point of Departure." Student achievement has remained central to CHEA research and policy analysis, as well as interviews and surveys with member institutions, conferences and meetings, and the "CHEA Award for Outstanding Institutional Practice in Student Learning Outcomes." CHEA, in addition to its own activities, has been part of many national and international conversations, working with colleagues to identify solutions and build consensus about moving forward with student achievement. This advisory statement identifies valuable practices associated with the role of accreditation in addressing student achievement. "Student achievement" refers to the knowledge, skills and abilities that a student has attained as a result of engagement in a particular set of higher education experiences.
