Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v40 n4 p22-27 Jul-Aug 2008
In November 2005, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) invited its institutional members to submit applications for the newly established CHEA Award for Institutional Progress in Student Learning Outcomes. The award acknowledges outstanding institutional progress in developing and applying evidence of student learning outcomes as part of the ongoing evaluation and improvement of college and university programs. In establishing this award, the CHEA board of directors recognized the importance of attention to student achievement, especially given the current intense focus on accountability. This article describes the award criteria and process. This article also aims to provide ideas that are useful for institutions as they develop and use evidence of student achievement to judge their own performance and improve their programs.
