Effective Use of Graduating Senior Survey as a Part of Program Assessment. AIR 2002 Forum Paper.
Lancey, Patrice M.; Salazar, Marjorie; Pet-Armacost, Julia
This paper presents a case study, including a survey sample, of the process used to implement an effective Graduating Seniors Survey within the institutional effectiveness (IE) process at a major metropolitan research university. From an organizational point of view, the university's survey support office and the faculty and staff responsible for the assessment processes jointly implement an integrated IE process for continuous improvement. From a methodological point of view, it is seen that the Graduating Seniors Survey directly supports the assessment process by collecting student feedback from graduating seniors at the program level. The survey support office thus can provide each program with the specific data necessary to measure its assessment objectives. The developed survey is included.
