The MN/MS Coordinating Committee (MCC) is responsible for program evaluation of the MN and MS degree programs. MCC works in conjunction with Academic Services (AS) to assess student competency at entry into the program, at the end of the program, and at specified intervals following graduation. Multiple sources of evaluation data are used, including students, faculty, graduates, and work supervisors of 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 MN and MS degree programs are evaluated by five tools (see below) designed to measure specific outcomes related to MN Goals and 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 feasible. The specific expected program outcomes are displayed in the MN Matrix or MS Matrix, where the curricular objectives are listed horizontally and the curricular themes vertically.
Graduates complete the Alumni Follow-up Questionnaire and their supervisor completes the Colleague Evaluation. Both questionnaires will be mailed to all MN and MS graduates in the first, third, and fifth years after graduation.
