The Assessment Committee of the School of Business & Economics reports periodically to the Dean and the faculty regarding reviews of assessment data conducted by the committee as that data is collected.
- Assessment Reviews
The School of Business & Economics has instituted an elaborate Assurance of Learning process. It involves survey-based assessment, test-based assessment, and course-embedded assessment.
The following surveys are undertaken by the Assessment Committee:
- Graduating Student Exit Survey (every semester, undergrad and MBA))
- Employer Survey (every 5 years)
- Alumni Survey (every 5 years)
- EBI Survey (every 5 years)
- Exit Survey (undergrad and MBA)
- Faculty Survey
- Alumni Survey (undergrad and MBA)
The Chair of the Assessment Committee reports the findings of each survey to the Faculty Committee in the semester the results are available.
Besides the surveys, the School also requires all graduating students to take either the ETS Major Field test in Business or a home-grown Core Concept Test. These two tests are administered in alternate semesters as part of the Capstone course in undergraduate (J403) and graduate (D511) programs. This ensures that a student takes only one of the tests. In addition to the ETS major Field test, the School also administers the ETS-ICT test to measure the IT skills of undergraduate and graduate students. The Chair of the Assessment Committee provides a detailed analysis of the results of these tests at a Faculty Meeting next semester.
Course-Embedded AssessmentCourse-embedded assessment is particularly suitable for many learning outcomes deemed critical for any business program such as teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, and communication. The School of Business & Economics has instituted a comprehensive course-embedded assessment program. The Undergraduate and Graduate Program learning Goals and Objectives are referenced on this website. Instructors of courses identified for course-embedded assessment, make the relevant results (e.g., essays, reports, evaluation forms etc.) available to the Chair of the Assessment Committee who, in turn, report the results to the Faculty committee.
