Continuous Improvement

“There is a compelling public stake in education. As educators, we have a responsibility to the publics that support or depend on us to provide information about the ways in which our students meet goals and expectations. But that responsibility goes beyond the reporting of such information; our deeper obligation -- to ourselves, our students, and society -- is to improve. Those to whom educators are accountable have a corresponding obligation to support such attempts at improvement.”

(From: American Association for Higher Education – 9 principles of good practices in assessing students)

“Margaret Spellings may be secretary emerita, but the assessment and accountability movements – which predate her commission – are alive and well. And, if colleges think they can ignore these pushes, they are seriously misguided.”

From: Assessing Assessment, Inside Higher Education, Jan. 23, 2009
