The use of direct measures of student performance in the Hasan School of Business provides a relevant set of performance data. Reviewed by faculty, discipline groups, the College’s Assurance of Learning Committee, and administrators, results of these measures are used to make program improvements. In addition to course grades, direct measures of student performance in the Hasan School of Business include:
- The Educational Testing Service (ETS) Major Fields Test in Business. This test, conducted nationwide, assesses what students have learned primarily in courses common to all business majors (Areas F & G). Results are compared with those of other business students enrolled at selected peer institutions, as well as nationally, who have taken the exam that year.
- Course-Embedded Measures. Beginning as course assignments, such as exams, papers, presentations, or projects, course-embedded measures can be modified to reveal student performance data in ways that course grades might not.
