Inspired by Michael Holquist’s challenge to the MLA to dialogue about the CCSI, what it means for us, and our relationship to secondary education, this is a space for discussion of standards, assessment, and our role in this process.

- Harding University's Credit Hour Policy with description of credit hour calculator In a previous post I asked if anyone knew anything about a new federal regulation that demanded that individual courses calculate the number of hours of overall student work so that they can comply with federal credit hour definitions. A very kind respondent set me straight: there is no such federal regulation, although colleges are supposed to insure that courses are meeting the federal definition of credit hour for each course. This file represents my institution's policy for dealing with the new federal credit hour definition.
