The Value of Accreditation for Learning Centers and Their Programs
Bailey, Geoffrey
NADE Digest, v9 n2 p14-15 Win 2018
Creating a culture of assessment is an essential practice and mindset for postsecondary institutions as well as the units and departments embedded within respective campuses. Although it may sound daunting at first glance, simply put, assessment is "a set of processes designed to improve, demonstrate, and inquire about student learning" (Mentowski, 1998). Arguably, there is tremendous value to having a "systematic collection, review, and use of information about educational programs" so that educators better understand student learning and can effectively scale such learning and practices (Marchese, 1987). Moreover, assessing the learning process goes beyond measuring learning outcomes and incorporates future-thinking. This article presents the value of accreditation for learning centers and their programs.
