The Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) was introduced in 2011 to provide a baseline set of reference points for what students should know and be able to do to merit the award of associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees—regardless of their field of study. Tuning, introduced nationally in 2009, is a process by which faculty in different fields of study determine discipline-specific desired learning outcomes for their subject area through consultations with one another, colleagues on other campuses, students, alumni, and employers. Tuning has been undertaken at state and national levels, while DQP work has unfolded within individual institutions and across institutional partnerships.
