As the demands for public accountability increase for higher education, institutions are seeking methods for continuous improvement in order to demonstrate quality within programs and processes, including those provided through online education. To support the needs of its member institutions with regard to quality measurement and improvement, the Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) today announced its endorsement of the “Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Education Programs.” “We are committed to championing quality in online education and providing our members the resources they need to be successful,” said John Bourne, Ph.D., executive director of the Sloan Consortium. “We believe the Quality Scorecard is a breakthrough tool for standardizing the industry and for enabling online learning institutions not only to measure and report on the quality of their programs, but to identify areas for improvement.”
