Description: This monograph, fourth in the ACE/EDUCAUSE series Distributed Education: Challenges, Choices, and a New Environment, explores how distributed education challenges the credit hour as the standard measure of student progress. It describes a system based on alternate measurements of student learning that accommodates the asynchronous nature of distributed education. The paper also examines the institutional, state, and federal policy implications of an alternative measurement system.
