Report on Evaluating Educational Outcomes: A Nazareth College Alumni Perspective.
To assess the college's impact on graduates, Nazareth College administered the American College Testing Program's Educational Services Alumni Survey to a sample of recent graduates. While there was particular interest in exploring perceptions of the general education program before and after a major curricular innovation called the McGrail Plan, the instrument also collected much data potentially useful in a number of ways for evaluation and planning. Data included: demographics, current alumni practices and plans, continuing education, perceived quality of education received and the college's effect on personal development, employment history, and evaluation of the McGrail Plan, a program stressing professional development in five human services career areas. Sixty-eight alumni responded, with a high degree of satisfaction in the college's program and impact. Alumni perceived a high degree of integration between the professional and general education components of the curriculum and expressed strong appreciation for the general education curriculum's value.
