Assessing Success in Honors: Getting beyond Graduation Rates
Kelly, Sean K.
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v14 n2 p25-30 Fall-Win 2013
An honors curriculum with realistic graduation requirements should have a respectable graduation rate. This number, when low, can indicate significant problems in the program. But a high graduation rate does not necessarily indicate success. A quality honors program, especially one that remains attentive to students' ability to thrive, might have better measures available for judging impact and effectiveness. The following topics are discussed for measuring success within an honors program: (1) Admission; (2) Curriculum; and (3) Assessment.
