Title:  The National Assessment of College Student Learning: An Inventory of State-Level Assessment Activities
Description: This document summarizes proceedings and conclusions of a two-day national planning work-shop on the topic of furthering the assessment of national postsecondary outcomes, sponsored by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and held in Washington, D.C. on December 7-8, 1995. Activities at the workshop were designed specifically to address the degree to which state-level assessment initiatives in higher education might aid in the construction of a national indicator of postsecondary attainment consistent with Goal 6.5 of the National Education Goals, and to determine ways in which NCES and the states might work more effectively to develop mutually supporting activities and policies in the realm of postsecondary assessment. As a consequence, invited participants consisted of representatives from each state, selected assessment and national policy experts, and NCES staff.
