A model of college-level learning for the states

The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education this month published its Measuring Up,
a model for evaluating and comparing college-level learning on a state-by-state basis, including assessing educational capital. As well as releasing the results for five participating states, the National Forum also explores the implications of its project findings in terms of performance gaps by race/ethnicity and educating future teachers.
The National Center is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization promoting "public policies that enhance Americans' opportunities to pursue and achieve high-quality education and training beyond high school...(and) prepares action-oriented analyses of pressing policy issues facing the states and the nation regarding opportunity and achievement in higher education."
