Culver, Steve
International Education, v40 n1 6-20 Fall 2010
The higher education system in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States provides a case model for how discussions regarding educational quality and assessment of that quality have affected institutions' policy decisions and implementation. Using Levin's (1998) policy analysis framework, this essay explores how assessment of student outcomes has affected educational policy and change.
