Degree Qualifications Profile & Tuning

The Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP) outlines a set of reference points for what students should know and be able to do upon completion of associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees – in any field of study. The DQP represents a comprehensive and ongoing effort to clearly define what postsecondary degrees should mean in terms of specific learning outcomes.
Tuning identifies what a student should know and be able to do when awarded a degree in a specific discipline. The DQP, in turn, provides orientation points for the fields of study based on area of learning.
The main organizations involved with the development of the DQP are the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA), the Institute for Evidence-Based Change (IEBC), and the Lumina Foundation.
