Additional Support for the Information Systems Analyst Exam as a Valid Program Assessment Tool
Carpenter, Donald A.; Snyder, Johnny; Slauson, Gayla Jo; Bridge, Morgan K.
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n4 p73-79 Sep 2011
This paper presents a statistical analysis to support the notion that the Information Systems Analyst (ISA) exam can be used as a program assessment tool in addition to measuring student performance. It compares ISA exam scores earned by students in one particular Computer Information Systems program with scores earned by the same students on the Major Field Test (MFT). The paper shows that the ISA Exam appears to measure knowledge retention in the same manner as the MFT. Since the MFT is recommended as a valid program assessment tool, the ISA Exam should be similarly recommended.
