The Journal of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness (JAIE)

JAIE is a publication of the New England Educational Assessment Network. NEean offers an array of programs and services that promote quality assessment of student learning and enhance the effectiveness of New England’s institutions of higher education.

JAIE was inaugurated through the sponsorship of Southern Connecticut State University, through the Office of the Provost and supported by the Office of the Associate Provost for Assessment and Planning.  It is now being supported and published by Penn State University Press.

JAIE invites scholarly papers from assessment investigators in every field relating to student learning outcomes, assessment processes in academic disciplines, institutional effectiveness planning, public policy, or other research-based or theoretical analyses. JAIE reaches a nation-wide assessment community of academic faculty, student services personnel, administrative planners, institutional research officers and practicing assessment professionals.
