Assessing the Validity of Higher Education Indicators.
Schmitz, Constance C.
Journal of Higher Education, v64 n5 p503-21 Sep-Oct 1993
A study investigated the validity of eight indicators (acceptance rate, mean entrance test score, matriculants' class standing, faculty/student ratio, faculty background, instructional budget, retention, graduation rate) for assessing quality in higher education institutions. Indicators were more predictive of retention, graduation, and reputation at selective national than selective regional colleges. (Author/MSE)
