The (Mis)Use of Technology in the National Accreditation System
Qualitative Research in Education Volume 3, Number 2,
The use of technology in the evaluation of higher education programs is a mainstay. Physical evidence rooms, face-to-face interviews, and reviewing of documentation on site have become obsolete. Relying on the heavy use of technology in the evaluation process has allowed what some believe to be a more cohesive, streamlined approach to the presentation of data, however, many face serious concerns with the reliance on technology; what is lost? Missed? not appreciated? How much is the understanding of technology and ability to present the "show" digitally impressing the reviewers verses actual quality of programs and institution?
