18 18 Policy Recommendations Federal imposed accountability would be counterproductive (existing measurements are imperfect; unintended consequences likely) Federal resources could provide incentives for institutional improvement, innovation and assessment Federal resources needed to develop research infrastructure to advance scientific knowledge of learning in higher education Accountability should be at the institutional level

19 19 Recommendations for Institutional Improvement Institutional leadership to emphasize learning, develop plans for improvement and support ongoing assessment of both program quality and student learning outcomes. Faculty collective responsibility for ensuring academic rigor across programs and classes (i.e., course requirements and appropriate grading standards). Promote organizational cultures emphasizing student academic engagement, not just social engagement and student retention
