Beefing Up the College Scorecard
Andrew Kreighbaum, Inside Higher Ed
The Education Department on Monday announced progress on delivering more comprehensive data for the College Scorecard, a consumer tool originally launched by the Obama administration.
The move is a first step toward giving students access to a fuller picture on outcomes for individual higher education programs. Potential students could see, for example, how liberal arts majors fare versus engineering students at nearby institutions, instead of just getting results for the college overall.
