Best Practices devotees know that in Sept. 08 the committee began a comprehensive review of standards that includes considering the contents of reports by two special subcommittees, on Outcome Measures and Security of Position and comments on the reports.
My sources describe the committee as “in a deregulatory mood” and the current version of the Outcome Measures report as “surprisingly good”. Not yet having coalesced around a decision, at their October 9-10 meeting the committee did the usual for complex issues & referred the Outcome Measures report back to committee.
Next meeting: January 8 and 9, New Orleans at the AALS Convention. Stop by! (Don’t expect them to be taking comments at this meeting.)
