A major cultural shift has occurred in higher education. The time of low transparency, limited, and general knowledge of the student learning experience is quickly becoming a past reality. The present day and surely the future of higher education are focused on accountability and student assessment. From the national government to tuition paying parents transparency on student outcomes is an expectation. For this Discussion, you will look into some examples of accountability measures and student assessment and consider the role of a higher education leader in the midst of this cultural shift.
Review this week’s resources on accountability measures and research academic journal articles to familiarize yourself with the topic further.
Review accountability measures related to student assessment in your state or nationally. Refer to this week’s Learning Resources and read “State Education Agencies Nationwide.”
Post three examples of accountability measures focused on student assessment found in your state or nationally. Explain your position on why accountability measures focused on student assessment are a priority for many institutions. What does a leader in higher education need to prioritize to effectively implement this type of change?
