The development of instruments such as the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) requires high expertise in educational assessment as well as methodological and technical rigor. The CLA is based on a clear conceptualization of competence and uses frontline methods. It can therefore serve as a prototype for other areas of competence assessment beyond business education. Measuring university effectiveness is likely to remain a key point on the agenda of university reform. However, assessment of learning outcomes can be effective only if it is combined with appropriate measures for improving performance, such as the systematic training and certification of novice university teachers.
