Abstract

The authors explore the disconnect between espoused and enacted values in assurance of learning activities—assessment is said to be encouraged, valued, and rewarded—but is it? The data from an analysis of 200 pages of the contractual rules (bylaws) for reappointment, tenure, and promotion at Central Michigan University demonstrate little emphasis and little reward for faculty engagement in assessment activities. Recommendations for closing the gap between espoused and enacted values are made.
