Ratcliff, James L.
Journal of General Education, v42 n1 p59-82 1993
Examines forces shaping the development of a national collegiate assessment program, including increases in immigrants and elective courses. Highlights obstacles to assessing college students' critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving abilities and argues that a national program should begin in states and individual colleges rather than rely on direct federal intervention.
