about

In this era of increasing pressure on higher education institutions for accountability, Planning and Assessment in Higher Education is an essential resource for college and university leaders and staff charged with the task of providing evidence of institutional effectiveness. Michael F.

"How can the assessment of institutional effectiveness be used to provide a solid foundation for planning? Middaugh has crafted a comprehensive, practical guide that also explains what accrediting agencies really want and need to know about these topics."
Elizabeth H. Sibolski, executive vice president, Middle States Commission on Higher Education

He helped invent and shape the focus of national assessment rubrics and now offers his insights into how to make them work for your institution."
