Program Assessment: Getting to a Practical How-To Model
Gardiner, Lorraine R.; Corbitt, Gail; Adams, Steven J.
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n3 p139-144 2010
The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International's assurance of learning (AoL) standards require that schools develop a sophisticated continuous-improvement process. The authors review various assessment models and develop a practical, 6-step AoL model based on the literature and the authors' AoL-implementation experiences. The model creates a sound foundation for compliance with AACSB standards as well as regional accreditation and likely future assessment requirements. The authors present suggestions for successful implementation of each AoL step as well as cautions on possible pitfalls. (Contains 2 figures.)
