Business, Political & Academic Perspectives on Higher Education Accountability Policy
Bogue, Grady; Hall, Kimberely
College and University, v87 n3 p14-23 Win 2012
Evidence of the emergence of accountability expectations for higher education in the United States and throughout the world is abundant; it is in national reports, conference themes, mandated assessments, accreditation guidelines, and government statues and regulations. Yet some research establishes that business, political, and academic stakeholders do not necessarily agree as to either the purpose of accountability policy or what constitutes "evidence" of accountability. This paper presents survey results from academic, business, and political officers in five states, noting significant areas of consent and dissent regarding higher education accountability policy. (Contains 8 tables and 1 footnote.)
