Abstract: The purpose of this dissertation was to determine whether the institutional effectiveness model appropriate for the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (AABC) members was the same as the model used in other colleges and universities. The resolution of the research question allowed the development of a recommended model for Bible college outcomes assessment and the writing of a handbook for program implementation. The researcher prepared a model of institutional effectiveness for non-Bible colleges by complementing the literature search with data obtained by means of on-site visits to regionally accredited institutions. On-site visits were made to two community colleges, two private liberal arts colleges, and two members of the University of North Carolina System. An institutional effectiveness mail survey of the 86 AABC members was conducted. After 20 well-defined institutional effectiveness programs were identified based on the questionnaire data, the researcher surveyed those colleges by means of a telephone interview. To complete the data-gathering process, five AABC member colleges were visited by the researcher.
