TUNING USA: Resources on the Web


Contributed by Daniel McInerney, Utah State University


Some of the material below formerly appeared on the “Tuning USA” website. That link has now been transferred to the website for the DQP, the Degree Qualifications Profile. The two projects closely converge with one another.


Tuning’s question: What should students know, understand, and be able to do


                                            when they complete a major?


DQP’s question:      What should students know, understand, and be able to do


                                         when they complete a degree?



Faculty who are familiar with the former question (from their deep understanding of their own discipline) are often very comfortable and adept at addressing the larger question of how programs of study fit together into associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees.)
