The Development of a Portfolio Assessment Process for the Bachelor of Business Administration Program at Mount Vernon Nazarene College.
Bolender, Ronald K.
This report describes the development of a portfolio assessment process for the bachelor of business administration (BBA) program at Mount Vernon Nazarene College in Mount Vernon, Ohio. The BBA program is designed primarily for working adults. This process was developed by reviewing the literature on portfolio assessment, examining the use of portfolio assessment at 10 institutions of similar size and mission, presenting a working plan to a formative committee at the college, incorporating feedback and presenting the plan to a summative committee, and presenting the plan to the vice president for academic affairs for review and implementation. The portfolio assessment process will allow for three areas to be developed within the BBA curriculum: a variety of individualized learning experiences, shared ownership between the student and instructor of the assessment process, and a format to illustrate the outcomes of the individualized learning experiences. Twelve appendixes provide correspondence related to the research, results of the reviews of portfolio assessment at the 10 institutions, results of the formative and summative committee reviews, and the implementation plan.
