Higher Education Policy Volume 9, Number 4, ISSN 0952-8733

Abstract

Issues of institutional accountability for colleges and universities are examined in the American and European contexts, particularly as market forces gain importance in Europe. Varying forms of accountability (formal, through accreditation; financial; and academic) and two dimensions of accountability (external vs. internal, legal vs. financial) are considered. Attention is given to assessment of teaching and to effects of advancing technology. (MSE)
