6. Alumni Outcomes Assessment Project 2015
It is essential that every institution of higher education gauge how well it has prepared its students to reach their educational, developmental, and professional goals. Alumni can provide critical information on institutional level outcomes. Often, institutions of higher education use appraisals of what alumni have accomplished in the years after degree completion as the foundation of the outcomes approach to alumni assessment. The OIAE led this first of its kind comprehensive project to gather a broad range of important information aimed at providing stakeholders with evidence for decision making. Click here to download
