Don't Miss This

by Andrew Gillen

Make sure you don't miss this post by Kevin Carey over at the Quick and the Ed:
Sample-based measures like the CLA are only the beginning; what we really need to do is start attaching a lot more useful information to individual college credentials while also making the credentialling process itself more open and flexibile, less about having been taught by some kind of formal institution and more about having actually learned something real.
While it's still in its infancy, value added measurement is coming. And you might not like the consequences if you're caught off guard by it.
