Degree Qualifications Profile Impact Study: Framing and Connecting Initiatives to Strengthen Student Learning
Jankowski, Natasha A.; Giffin, Laura
National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment
Following the release of the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) in 2011, many institutions of various types tried out different ways to use the DQP. Although over 680 institutions have used the DQP to date, until now the impact of the DQP on institutions and students has not been documented in a systematic manner. To determine the effects of DQP use on institutional policies and practices, the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) conducted a study of the more than 400 (n = 425) institutions that used the DQP between the 2011 release and the October 2014 revision. The study explored how institutions engaged with the DQP and how working with DQP was associated with changes in curriculum, instructional practices, and assessment activities. One appendix is included: Funded DQP Projects and Related Initiatives.
