The Higher Learning Commission has endorsed new guidelines, Committing to Quality: Guidelines for Assessment and Accountability, published by the New Leadership Alliance for Student Learning and Accountability. The guidelines help colleges and universities in improving the quality of a college degree by asking them to set clear goals for student achievement, regularly gather and use evidence that measures performance against those goals, report evidence of student learning, and continuously work to improve results. Committing to Quality: Guidelines for Assessment and Accountability is available for download. Hard copies will be available at no cost at the 2012 Higher Learning Commission Annual Conference.
