Will Accreditation Trump Diplomas?

Thinking about Accreditation in a Rapidly Changing World (EDUCAUSE Review) |

A new path for CBE accreditation would likely focus on three key areas:
  1. The learning outcomes or competencies—looking hard at the clarity of claims, definitions and rubrics, rigor, levels of mastery, scope of learning, the basis for the competencies, and more
  2. The assessment of mastery—looking hard at mastery assessment, validity, rigor, and more
  3. Integrity—looking hard at how the program ensures that the students taking the assessments are those who enrolled, that cheating and fraud are prevented, and that funding support is appropriate and goes to actual demonstrated learning
