Implementation of Program Assessment in a Technical Department
- Richard Boser (Illinois State University)
- Kenneth W. Stier (Illinois State University)
Program assessment, quality assurance, and continuous improvement have become essential elements of the accreditation process. National higher education associations, such as The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, mandate ongoing evaluation and assessment as a “core component” of the institution (The Higher Learning Commission, 2003). The Commission further noted the “need to create a culture of evidence (p. 3.2-7)” based on quality improvement principles to drive institutional assessment.
