I have been making the case for good assessment for a couple of years. There are definite pros and cons as you’ll see if you take a look at the following article published in Academe: A Progressive Case for Educational Standardization. I’d love to start a discussion about any of the ideas listed in the article, such as the criticism that “”any attempt to apply such a common standard to colleges will inevitably result in a ‘one-size-fits-all’ straight-jacket that will destroy what is most distinctive about our institutions and the heterogeneous student populations that they serve,” or the claim that assessment done well demystifies and democratizes education. So take a look, and let me know what you think. –Carole Huston
