According to Brookings, value-added measures attempt to isolate the contribution of the college to student outcomes as distinct from what one might predict based on student characteristics or the level of degree offered. It is not a measure of return on investment, but rather a way to compare colleges on a more equal footing, by adjusting for the relative advantages or disadvantages faced by diverse students pursuing different levels of study across different local economies.
“I am thrilled that Kettering College is providing such extraordinary value to its students and alumni,” says Nate Brandstater, Kettering College rresident. “Families all over America are placing more importance on the impact a college degree will have on a graduate’s career prospects. This study shows that Kettering College does best what people value most.”
