From the Editor: Quality Assessment
Abstract: Accountability and assessment are common themes in the discussion about improving quality in higher education today, but ideas about how to practice assessment and encourage accountability are complex and diverse. Some educators speculate that accreditation provides one answer and attempt to examine its impact on quality. Others view the accreditation process as an enforced element that does not necessarily encourage the kind of “buy in” that leads to self-initiated continuous process improvement. These are the questions facing higher education institutions today, and the questions colleges and universities will continue to face as educators work to improve the quality of higher education.
