Student & program evaluations
The Master of Nursing/Master of Science Coordinating Committee (MCC) is responsible for program evaluation of the MN and MS degree programs. MCC works in conjunction with Student and Academic Services to assess student competency at entry into the program, end of the program, and specified intervals following graduation. Multiple sources of evaluation data are used, including that from students, faculty and graduates. MCC reviews data via an annual program evaluation report, assessing outcomes of students who complete the program against specific benchmarks, and when indicated, appoints work groups to address areas of desired curricular change.
The MS degree program is evaluated by four tools designed to measure specific outcomes related to MS Goals and major curricular threads. Outcomes were derived by examining each program’s curricular objectives in relation to major curricular threads. Three or four outcomes were selected to evaluate each of the five curricular objectives since evaluating all 30 outcomes in the matrix was not practical. Specific expected program outcomes are displayed in the MS Matrix, where the curricular objectives are listed horizontally and the curricular themes vertically.
Graduates complete the Alumni Survey. The questionnaire will be mailed to all MS graduates in the first, third, and fifth years after graduation.
