Assessment of the Revised State University System Accountability Plan , Report No. 94-07, October 1994

  • The revised 1993 accountability plan includes the goals presented in the 1993-98 SUS Master Plan and contains input, output, and outcome measures. However, the revised plan continues to be limited in holding universities accountable for research, public service, graduate education, and reporting of university performance.
  • Faculty we interviewed agreed that universities should be held accountable in teaching, research, and public service. Faculty suggested measures of university teaching performance such as student evaluations, peer evaluations and student achievement, and of research performance such as publications and grants. But faculty had fewer suggestions for measuring public service, which may be neither well-defined nor rewarded among faculty.
