A Multivariete Methodology for Selection of Accreditation Peers
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education
This paper describes one college’s effort to identify peer institutions for accreditation comparisons. Previously, peers had been chosen subjectively. A cross-disciplinary faculty team first identified relevant data that could serve as the basis for a more objective method. The authors then constructed a spreadsheet that allowed exploration of alternative models evaluated according to a multivariate, phi-square performance measure.
