Book description

Increased demands for colleges and universities to engage in outcomes assessment for accountability purposes have accelerated the need to bridge the gap between higher education practice and advances in the fields of measurement, assessment, and evaluation. This research handbook provides higher education administrators, student affairs personnel, institutional researchers, and faculty with an integrated volume of theory, method, and application. Bringing together terminology, analytical perspectives, and methodological advances, this second edition facilitates informed decision-making while connecting the latest thinking in these methodological areas with actual practice in higher education. In this valuable resource, well-known scholars present a detailed understanding of contemporary theories and practices, with guidance on how to apply these ideas for the benefit of students and institutions.
