Quality Assurance Standards for Non-Traditional Education Programs - Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology

Entangled Solutions is forming a Quality Assurance Task Force to drive accountability and transparency for emerging models of education. The higher education consultancy today announced the initial members of the task force, who will "collaborate in the development of quality assurance standards that can be used to measure and report on outcomes for a diverse, cross section of education providers," according to a press release. The task force includes representatives from the University of Texas at Austin, Western Governors University and Bellevue University, as well as higher education industry leaders, former policymakers and associations, who will collect feedback from stakeholders to codify "transparent, outcome-oriented standards for evaluating educational programs." A draft of the standards will be published for public comment. Once the standards are finalized, an independent nonprofit organization will be created to maintain and update them over time. https://campustechnology.com/articles/2016/12/14/new-task-force-to-develop-quality-assurance-standards-for-nontraditional-education-programs.aspx
