The subject of accountability warrants thoughtful and dispassionate attention in today's educational environment. The accountability and school reform policies that are put in place today will have wide-ranging and long-lasting consequences for all of the nation's learners. This volume stems from the 2003 Educational Testing Service Invitational Conference that convened leading scholars and practitioners from education, psychology, economics, statistics, and public policy to discuss the important topic of measurement and accountability. The book begins with a broad look at where measurement and research have been and then moves into an examination of technical and methodological issues in accountability systems, closing learner achievement gaps, teacher quality issues, econometric perspectives, and finally, the all-important matter of aligning curriculum, standards, and assessment. The chapters cover all significant aspects of the current accountability scene, with careful but not exclusive attention to the No Child Left Behind. Written by nationally recognized scholars with a mandate to write in a non-technical style, this volume appeals to anyone seriously interested in school reform and the educational accountability movement.

The challenges public comprehensive universities face today are expanding—they have been challenged to enroll and graduate more students, adopt new technologies that lower cost without sacrificing quality, and align program and curricular offerings with the skills that employers require. While these universities have a long history of adapting to change, today’s environment will likely test the capabilities of even the most adaptive institutions. This volume assembles a team of experts from a variety of disciplines to examine both the history of the comprehensive university and what lies ahead. Overall, the book grapples with such questions as: How do these institutions adapt to serve the growing population of non-traditional students? How well do they prepare graduates for the labor market? Can partnerships between community colleges and comprehensive universities bolster student success? The University Next Door draws much-needed attention to a set of institutions that has historically received little notice, yet play an important role in meeting our new attainment goals and helping the American economy grow. Book Features: Examines the role of comprehensive universities from start to finish—their history and future. Uses empirical analysis to explore complex questions about which students choose these universities and why. Explores how these institutions might struggle under a federal ratings system such as the one proposed by President Obama. Discusses how these institutions can better monitor the needs of the economy and better educate students to fill those needs. Provides recommendations to inform future decisions about higher education policy. “In chapter after chapter, the contributors critically assess whether comprehensive universities can respond to the nation's ambitious call to action. This compelling volume is a valuable starting point for anybody concerned about the future of the institutions that help define American higher education as we know it today.” —Richard G. Rhoda, executive director, Tennessee Higher Education Commission “Schneider/Deane provides much-needed illumination on the U.S. higher education sector that will play a critical role in meeting the nation’s educational, workforce, and economic goals. It will serve as a valuable resource for all stakeholders who seek to affect positive change in policy and practice at public comprehensive universities.” —Daniel J. Hurley, associate vice president for government relations and state policy, American Association of State Colleges and Universities

Der Zusammenbruch der kommunistischen Regime 1989 hat nicht nur im östlichen Europa tief greifende Veränderungen in Gang gesetzt. Ein ganzer Kontinent ist in Bewegung geraten, mit Auswirkungen, die sich auch in Irkutsk, Shanghai oder Chicago spüren lassen. Wie weitreichend dieser Wandel ist, schildern die Autorinnen und Autoren in 21 farbigen Essays. Welche neuen Räume und Identitäten entstehen? Wie ändert sich der Blick der Menschen auf die Geschichte? Und wie rasch entgleiten uns die Erinnerungen an die Zeit des Kalten Krieges und der Teilung, die unser Denken und Handeln so lange bestimmt haben? Die Essays ergeben ein Mosaik von Beobachtungen und Reflexionen über eine sich seit 1989 auf faszinierende Weise neu formierende Welt. Mit Beiträgen von Markus Ackeret, Felix Ackermann, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, José Maria Faraldo, Sheila Fitzpatrick, Klaus Gestwa, Julian Hans, Helga Hirsch, Gangolf Hübinger, Gerd Koenen, Katharina Kucher, Ruth Leiserowitz, Claudio Magris, Jan Musekamp, Norman M.
