ABSTRACT
The article discusses methods in improving accreditation in higher education. Based on the increasing concern about the quality of higher education in the United States, evaluations have been made by accrediting agencies, educational associations, interested individuals and the schools themselves. Although the evaluations have a good effect in the local institution, there is still a need for development, so that evaluations can be used in wide applications. The two main data-gathering devices that accrediting agencies use are questionnaires and personal interviews.
