Panel on Measuring Higher Education Productivity

9780309257749 - Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education

Artikelomschrijving

Higher education is a linchpin of the American economy and society: teaching and research at colleges and universities contribute significantly to the nations economic activity, both directly and through their impact on future growth; federal and state governments support teaching and research with billions of taxpayers dollars; and individuals, communities, and the nation gain from the learning and innovation that occur in higher education. In the current environment of increasing tuition and shrinking public funds, a sense of urgency has emerged to better track the performance of colleges and universities in the hope that their costs can be contained without compromising quality or accessibility. Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education presents an analytically well-defined concept of productivity in higher education and recommends empirically valid and operationally practical guidelines for measuring it. In addition to its obvious policy and research value, improved measures of productivity may generate insights that potentially lead to enhanced departmental, institutional, or system educational processes.
