The latest edition of Kells's groundbreaking work on deriving the maximum benefit from the self-evaluation process has been extensively rewritten to place a strong emphasis on quality assurance and building a culture of self-regulation within the institution. The author discusses how to design an effective, efficient self-study program to fit each institution's situation as well as how to generate enthusiasm for the process and its potential to improve programs. The book ably demonstrates how the self-study process is applicable not only to the effective management of institutions, but also to satisfying the requirements of the accreditation process.

Review:

?...an invaluable resource to anyone embarking on a self-study exercise. The author provides an excellent conceptual framework for organizing and implementing a self-study exercise. His suggestions are applicable at any level within the academy - department, college, and at the institutional level....It would also be very helpful for those involved in developing a student assessment plan....I would recommend this book for any chair or committee member appointed to an institutional self-study project. Not only is it a valuable primer to prepare for the task and it offers suggestions to help the institution accept the recommendations and to adopt them from a self-study. This is a valuable resource given the increasing emphasis on outcomes and evaluation in higher education.?-Administrator
