Using the Degree Qualifications Profile to Foster Meaningful Change
Jankowski, Natasha A.; Giffin, Laura
National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment
Examples from the field indicates that effectively using the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) can benefit both students and institutions (Jankowski & Giffin, 2016). But what does "effective use" entail and how does it unfold? That is, what is the nature of the process that makes it possible for institutions to use the DQP to achieve desired ends? In a post-convening survey of participants following the October 2014 launch of the revised DQP, 91% of participants agreed or strongly agreed with Lumina's call for widespread implementation of DQP, but only 5% agreed that they understood the next steps in order to implement it. With this in mind, the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) has been tracking campus engagement with the DQP, identifying approaches that institutions have used to implement the framework in meaningful ways. In this report, we describe those approaches and how they have been used within and across institutions.
