Degree Qualifications Profile

The Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) will be piloted through voluntary learning communities to assess its usefulness as a framework for assisting institutions to assess the quality of degrees or portions of degree programs. The pilot will run from 2012 to 2014 on a voluntary and optional basis. The Commission will share the results of the pilot at Commission meetings, sessions with ALOs and at other times during the Academic Resource Conferences. Based on the review of the pilot and further discussion within the region, the Commission will determine what uses of the DQP are appropriate for quality assurance.

On April 16, 2012 some of the institutions participating in WASC’s DQP pilot got together in Costa Mesa, CA at the ARC to present posters on what they are doing with their DQP projects to each other, WASC staff, and Peter Ewell. The attached documents are samples of some of those posters.
