"We have been discussing productivity in higher education policy circles for decades (some of you will remember Bruce Johnson's theory of “learning productivity” from the 1990s). But now that what people see as an increasingly essential good is slipping out of the hands of many citizens because of rising costs and prices, some of our most respected researchers are taking on the task of determining how we might measure our productivity. It's in our own self-interest that our best minds work on this problem, since they are sensitive to the different missions and student populations in the sprawling system of colleges and universities in this country."

Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education

Improving Measurement of Productivity in Higher Education | DustinSantana | Scoop.it

"Higher education is a critical element of the American economy, because of both its benefits and its costs to individuals and taxpayers. Yet we know very little about the relationships between the things colleges and universities do and the resources they need to do them. Currently, shrinking public support and increasing tuition make it urgent that we understand our own productivity and how to measure it. The challenge we face is to contain costs without compromising quality or accessibility.

 

This article summarizes the report of the National Research Council Panel on Measuring Higher Education Productivity (NRC 2012a). Table 1, derived from material in the report, also appears in Massy, Sullivan, and Mackie (2013)."
