"Assessment and evaluation have always been important components of higher education in one form or another. There are many books and journals dedicated to established practices and processes, particularly the contribution that these make to student learning and to course, staff and institutional development. The National Collegiate Honors Council (hereafter NCHC) recognized the importance of assessment and evaluation from its inception in the 1960s. However, NCHC recognized that honors programs were unlike disciplinary departments. By 1970 the organization established a list of consultants mostly made up of directors of honors programs who were willing to assist other faculty and administrators in establishing an honors program as well as assisting programs develop evaluation tools specific to honors. Prior to that, honors programs followed the established procedures of their respective institutions."
