Hou, Ya-Wen; Lee, Che-Wei; Gunzenhauser, Michael G. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Since the 1960s, student evaluation of teaching (or SET) has been prevalent in higher education and frequently controversial (Benton & Cashin, 2014; Pounder, 2007; Valsan & Sproule, 2008).

Hatch, Deryl K.; Garcia, Crystal E. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Given community colleges' open enrollment policies and their numerous instructional missions (A. M. Cohen & Brawer, 2008), students enter and re-enter with various and often multiple objectives but not always with clear knowledge of how to clarify and accomplish them. Among early intake activities, the role of academic advising in particular…

Wang, Xueli; Sun, Ning; Wickersham, Kelly – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Contextualization refers to "a diverse family of instructional strategies designed to more seamlessly link the learning of foundational skills and academic or occupational content by focusing teaching and learning squarely on concrete applications in a specific context that is of interest to the student" (Mazzeo, 2008, p. 3). In…

Akos, Patrick; Kretchmar, Jen – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Admissions professionals have historically relied on measures of cognitive ability and academic achievement to make decisions about which applicants are admitted to their institutions. At the very least, selection on the basis of these factors (high school grades and standardized test scores) alone potentially decreases ethnic and socioeconomic…

Museus, Samuel D.; Yi, Varaxy; Saelua, Natasha – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Low rates of student persistence and degree completion are a major concern of colleges and universities across the United States. It is therefore important for higher education researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to better understand how to maximize the success of higher education's increasingly diverse undergraduate populations. This…

Kezar, Adrianna; Gehrke, Sean; Bernstein-Sierra, Samantha – Review of Higher Education, 2017
For the past 20 years, countless reports have been issued calling for reform of undergraduate education to improve student learning, persistence, and graduation rates for students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors. However, by many measures, recommendations in these reports have not been widely implemented. While…

Fosnacht, Kevin; Sarraf, Shimon; Howe, Elijah; Peck, Leah K. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Surveys play an important role in understanding the higher education landscape. About 60 percent of the published research in major higher education journals utilized survey data (Pike, 2007). Institutions also commonly use surveys to assess student outcomes and evaluate programs, instructors, and even cafeteria food. However, declining survey…

Ngo, Federick; Kosiewicz, Holly – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Improving the outcomes of students in developmental or remedial math remains a puzzle in higher education. Concerns with low persistence and completion rates have motivated proponents of reform to reconsider the delivery of developmental math. Lengthening the amount of time in math is thought to be an intervention that improves academic…

Ostenson, Joseph A.; Clegg, Joshua W.; Wiggins, Bradford J. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
We argue that academic life is increasingly giving way to forces of industrialization and that many of the problems confronting higher education arise within this transformation. We discuss how a culture of standardization has led to academic monocultures; how faculty autonomy has been subverted by topdown management structures; how locally based…

Cai, Yuzhuo – Review of Higher Education, 2017
While studies dealing with issues related to innovations in higher education proliferate, there has been little consensus on key concepts and central issues for research. To respond to the challenges, this paper calls for developing a new research field--studies on innovations in higher education, by integrating two disciplines, namely innovation…

Croom, Natasha N. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
This study examined seven Black womyn full professors' experiences of promotion beyond tenure. Using a critical race feminist theoretical framework, findings suggest that a meritocratic ideology undergirds a dominant narrative about the Professor rank. However, racism and sexism mediated the participants' opportunities to access the status and…

Johnson, Ane Turner – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Higher education institutions around the world are sites of contestation. Armed groups have targeted universities in efforts to divert valuable resources, destabilize communities, and suppress dissent. Moreover, conflict has engendered poor relations with community members that should be characterized by collaboration between the institution and…

Collins, Christopher S. – Review of Higher Education, 2017
In 2012, the United States Agency for International Development allocated $137 million to fund seven universities to create "development labs" to advance social/economic progress and reduce poverty. International economic development has become a booming field and industry but is also highly contested. The function of the university as a…
