Summary note
"This book provides a comprehensive treatment, with chapters that examine the returns to undergrad education, how costs differ by major, the productivity of for-profit schools, the productivity of various types of faculty, how online education has affected the market, and more. This work addresses the five challenges to assessing productivity in higher ed: multiple outcomes, the "multi-product" nature of institutions, selection, attribution, and the public nature of some benefits"-- Provided by publisher.
