Title:Higher education accountability for student learning
Organization:National Governors Association
Short Description:Governors can help restrain college costs—while extending a quality postsecondary education to a larger segment of the population—by insisting that student learning outcomes become an integral part of state higher education accountability systems. Governors can help build accountability systems that distinguish between state-level and institutional standards and assessments, while providing support for each.

Governors can help build accountability systems that distinguish between state-level and institutional standards and assessments, while providing support for each. State-level accountability systems need to focus on aggregate statewide objectives for postsecondary education, whereas institutional systems can reflect institution-specific priorities.
