Recommendations for Implementing an Effective, Efficient, and Enduring Outcomes-Based Assessment Program
Bresciani, Marilee J.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v36 n6 p411-421 2012
To propose recommendations to implement outcomes-based assessment program review in a California Community College District, a grounded theory analysis was performed within the district. The findings generated were cross-referenced with findings from a multi-institutional case study analysis. A key finding from the cross-reference was the need for the leadership to clarify across all levels of the organization who the audience is for the data generated from the program review process; to clarify the indicators that each audience requires; and to clarify how that audience intends to use results generated from the process prior to designing the outcomes-based assessment process.
