Development of Student Assessment Survey for Northeastern University's University College Liberal Arts Program.
Bauser, William W.
This practicum report describes the development of a student assessment survey to evaluate whether the liberal arts programs at Northeastern University (Massachusetts) were meeting the needs of the adult student population. Emphasis was on determining appropriate content and format design for a student assessment survey. A student outcomes survey was designed and was pilot tested with seven graduates of the liberal arts programs. Validation indicated the measure was useful in assessing the outcomes of graduates. The measure allowed respondents to evaluate the program's effectiveness in developing respondents' comprehension, accessibility, retrieval, and communication skills and appeared to be relevant to the educational experience and career choice of the adult student. It was also concluded that the mail survey was the best format. Appendices include names of individuals involved in the study, a list of survey objectives, and the survey instrument itself.
