Does Educational Preparation Match Professional Practice: The Case of Higher Education Policy Analysts
Arellano, Eduardo C.; Martinez, Mario C.
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n2 p105-116 Jun 2009
This study compares the extent to which higher education policy analysts and master's and doctoral faculty of higher education and public affairs programs match on a set of competencies thought to be important to higher education policy analysis. Analysts matched master's faculty in three competencies while analysts and doctoral faculty matched in five competencies. The findings suggest possible reasons why analysts and graduate faculty agree or differ on various competencies. Also, the findings raise important questions regarding the preparation of higher education policy analysts and the graduate programs that educate them. This study is an addition to the body of competency literature.
