"Foundation guideposts, productivity and the potential for degree qualifications profiles" is a podcast interview with Jamie Merisotis, President and CEO of the Lumina Foundation for Education. Merisotis higlights Lumina’s Goal 2025 initiative as it looks at college preparation, improving success in higher education, and improving productivity. For Merisotis productivity means increasing efficiency and effectiveness. Moreover, Merisotis refers to the four steps to finishing first framework, which involves performance based funding, incentives for students, new models of academic delivery, and business/administrative efficiencies. Additionally, Merisotis discusses the Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP), which serves as a framework of what students should know after completing a higher education degree. The DQP establishes outcomes for several levels of higher education and is cumulative. Currently, Lumina is testing the DQP in 100 institutions across 30 states.
