Identifying Barriers in Implementing Outcomes-Based Assessment Program Review: A Grounded Theory Analysis
Bresciani, Marilee J.
Research & Practice in Assessment, v6 p5-16 Sum 2011
The purpose of this grounded theory study was to identify the typical barriers encountered by faculty and administrators when implementing outcomes-based assessment program review. An analysis of interviews with faculty and administrators at nine institutions revealed a theory that faculty and administrators' promotion, tenure (if applicable), and/or renewal of contracts are often not dependent on whether they use results from outcomes-based assessment program review to improve their students' learning and development.
