Accreditation and Student Learning Outcomes


“Accreditation and Student Learning” is a collection of news and opinion articles edited by Inside Higher Ed with the support provided by ETS about the effort by colleges and accreditors to measure learning outcomes. The articles aren’t today’s breaking news, but reflect long-term trends and some of the forward-looking thinking of experts about how colleges are responding to the pressure they’re facing in accreditation to measure student learning. The goal is to provide these materials (both news articles and opinion essays) in one easy-to-read place. As the conversations around the changes in higher education and need for accreditation continue, ETS has collaborated with with Inside Higher Ed to create this booklet on accreditation and SLOs.
