Trends in Learning Outcomes, General Education, and Assessment

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Abstract

From November 19, 2008, to February 16, 2009, Hart Research Associates conducted an online survey among 433 Chief Academic Officers or designated representatives at AAC&U member institutions to measure the prevalence of specified learning outcomes in higher education institutions today and to document recent trends in curricular change, specifically in the areas of general education and assessment.   The margin of error is ±4.7 percentage points for the entire sample, and it is larger for subgroups. The total population for the survey included 906 AAC&U member institutions that were invited to complete the survey, and thus the response rate for the survey is 48%.

The sample for this survey is representative of AAC&U’s total membership and includes chief academic officers at public and private institutions, 2-year and 4-year institutions, and small and large institutions.  Forty-four percent of those surveyed were at public institutions and 55 percent were at private institutions (including independent and religious institutions).
