ERIC Digest.


This digest discusses the role of continuous quality improvement (CQI) in college classroom effectiveness efforts, particularly specific institutions where sustained CQI programs have affected college classroom practice, these projects' common features, and lingering doubts about CQI. It discusses the general principles and philosophy of CQI and its particular promise in education to make students the focus, classroom effectiveness the concern, and assessment a means to gain feedback for future improvement. It looks in detail at CQI efforts at seven organizations, two within the same institution and analyzes common threads among them such as viewing students as stakeholders, customized faculty development offerings, and financial realignment. The report also addresses lingering misgivings about CQI concerning standardization, benchmarking, customer focus, teams, and quality. (Contains five references.) (JB)
