Some new resources from the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) offer guidance on using the DQP in practical and straightforward ways both on campuses and in systems or consortia.
The first is written by member of the Faculty Collaboratives team in Utah, Dan McInerney and Norm Jones. It's a 2-page document designed as a "thinking professor's guide" to the DQP.
The second is a program guide for general education using the DQP. It's also short and concise.
The third summarizes briefly how campuses have been using the DQP to help them align programs and outcomes.
Most helpful work from NILOA!

So much energy is begin generated by work with both DQP and Tuning that we have started a new eportfolio dedicated to the two initiatives together. It's here.
Here is a page where we will post good examples of DQP in use on campuses. Some of these examples are likely to include or embrace Tuning as well.
1) A Set of Case Studies showing how faculty are using the DQP to improve outcomes for transfer students are now published on the AAC&U website in the Quality Collaboratives pages.
2) Three programs at Salt Lake Community College are using the DQP:
3) Here's an example from Utah State University, "Aligning GE and the Major."
4) Scientific Thinking and Integrative Reasoning Skills (STIRS), a LEAP Challenge project devoted to evidence-based learning, absolutely does lend itself to work with the DQP as well as with Tuning. The link above takes you to case studies for STIRS that can model this effort.
