Examining the Relationship between the National Survey of Student Engagement and the ETS Business Major Field Test
Ward, Chris; Yates, Dan; Song, Joon Young
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n12 p33-40 2010
In this study, the authors examined the relationship between the various NSSE (National Survey of Student Engagement) survey items or classifications and the ETS Major Field Test (MFT) in Business. The sample consisted of 87 business students at a small liberal arts college. Many of the survey items were linked positively to the ETS Major Field Test. The results suggest that MFT is a better measurement than GPA for NSSE. As a noteworthy finding from the analysis, we need to mention that MFT is a better measurement of student engagement described in the NSSE rather than GPA. Therefore, it seems that the MFT is a valid external measurement of student engagement. In particular, the MFT shows a relative strength in assessing "Integration of Diversity into Coursework."
