关于我

有时我喜欢安静,有时我喜欢热闹。 有时我喜欢加入人群,有时我喜欢远离他们,独自呆着。 冬天我渴望阳光,夏天我盼望下雪。 春去秋来,不变的是我的学术信仰、志向和兴趣。一直思考着:什么是语用?为什么要研究语用?怎样研究语用?研究语用需要具备哪些素质?谁在研究语用?语用研究的走势如何?存在哪些问题?等等。 我深信“宁静”方可“致远”的道理,努力走向这种境界。 求学、求真的路上,深深领悟到过程决定结果,过程大于结果,远远大于结果。

Better Data Are Key to Improved Performance by Students and Colleges


As college costs and student-debt levels continue to rise, the public and policy makers are increasingly demanding evidence of a return on their investment. Yet, says a new report from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, consumers lack critical information that would help them answer the trillion-dollar question “Is college worth it?”

The problem, according to the report’s author, Jennifer Engle, is not that the data to answer that question don’t exist, but that they’re not widely available or accessible to the public. The result, she said in an interview, is that “we can’t answer some really basic questions about the value of higher education.”

In the report, Ms. Engle describes a “framework” of measures that she says would provide a more robust and more complete picture of student and institutional performance. The framework, which contains gauges in use by many of the foundation’s grantees, focuses on three core principles: “count all students,” “count all outcomes,” and “costs count.”

The foundation, which has spent millions of dollars in its effort to improve college completion and close attainment gaps, will push for widespread adoption of the measures and use the framework to evaluate the effect of its investments, according to the report.
