The purpose of this study was to explore the present status of efforts to assess student-learning outcomes within the bachelor's degree granting institutions of the campuses in one system of public higher education. Further, the purpose of this study was also to understand what challenges and criticisms academic leaders report about the call to provide learning outcome evidence. Themes and findings of the study suggest that accountability for student learning is a persistent accountability challenge within higher education institutions.
