Tuning Educational Resources

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.)
