"The Evolving Curriculum -- Measuring Effectiveness of Change" is a compilation of articles and essays on efforts to reshape what and how colleges teach at a time of increased concern about how much students learn. The news and opinion articles -- collected in a print-on-demand booklet -- surveys the landscape of curricular development and learning assessment, examining trends and highlighting best practices.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On June 26, Inside Higher Ed Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman discussed the topics raised in the booklet's articles and answered questions in a free webinar. To view the webinar, please click here.

This booklet was made possible in part through the advertising support of the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
