A survey of 885 public undergraduate institutions examined influences of state characteristics, accreditation emphases, and institutional dynamics on three approaches to student assessment (cognitive, affective, and post-college). Institutional dynamics and accreditation region were found to be the primary influences on all three student assessment approaches and institutional types. (Author/DB)
