Abstract:

What is the mission of the American college? Is it reasonable to expect to measure quality in our collegiate system? How do we adequately assess quality and still allow for diversity? In The Evidence for Quality, E. Grady Bogue and Robert L. Saunders answer these and other compelling questions as they take a comprehensive look at how quality is measured and how information on quality contributes to academic decision making. The book offers a synthesis of practices and policies in collegiate quality assurance, examining a range of contemporary approaches that include accreditation, student feedback, professional licensure, college rankings and ratings, and other measures of academic quality. Bogue and Saunders offer a quality assurance model that links principles of good practice to a strategic, unifying vision of quality. They evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and show how each makes a contribution to academic decision making. They draw on examples from numerous colleges and universities to demonstrate how various institutions developed strategic and effective quality assurance programs. And they set forth guidelines for all educators who are dedicated to developing a superior program of quality assurance that is as unique as their individual campus.
