Colleges’ Data on Student Learning Remain Largely Inaccessible, Report Says – Students – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Colleges’ Data on Student Learning Remain Largely Inaccessible, Report Says – Students – The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Apparently some efforts at “transparency” are more “transparent” than others — UCAN schools are silent, but VSA achools are “out there” .

The whole discussion of “transparency” founders for me when its purpose is described as to help parents and students select colleges.  How aggregate statistics on student grades would contribute to college selection is beyond me.  Even student evaluations, which are at least direct reports of student experiences, would be difficult to understand in a school vs. school comparison.
