by Maria Claudia Soler and Debra Bragg / Mar 16, 2016

Ideas for conducting outcomes evaluation is addressed in a new report by Maria Claudia Soler and Debra Bragg titled, "Outcomes Evaluation of Applied Baccalaureate Degree Programs in STEM and Technician Education". This report is the subject of a session at the upcoming Community College Baccalaureate Association (CCBA) design lab in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, March 19.  In print and in person, the authors describe outcomes evaluation applied to the implementation and impact of AB degrees in the community college and university context. They give examples of ways to evaluate AB degrees, including instruments from their NSF Advanced Technological Education (ATE) research on AB degrees in the U.S. The report concludes that evaluators be open to whatever outcome results emerge, whether they favor AB degrees or not.
