Voluntary System of Accountability

Voluntary System of Accountability

The Voluntary System of Assessment (VSA) is an educational assessment being developed by American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) to demonstrate accountability and stewardship to public and to identify effective educational practices. This project is a response to the call by the [http://www.ed.gov/news/speeches/2006/09/09262006.html Spellings Commission] for increased accountability in higher education.
