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 School’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. In the Hasan School of Business, the Major Fields Test is given to students in the BUSAD 493 capstone course in their senior year. The Hasan School of Business also administers the graduate ETS Exam in the MBA program at the end of students’ course work.
- 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.
In addition, the Hasan School of Business faculty measure achievement annually in each major and area of emphasis by administering a nationally standardized test. Results of such measurements are used for program assessment. The Hasan School of Business compiles information to assess the success of graduates. Information is obtained from the CSU-Pueblo Alumni Office, the Career Center, and other sources.
