Assessment of Progress for Undergraduate Majors in Small Departments: A Faculty-Student Assembly
Albone, Kenneth R.
Assessment Update, v20 n5 p11 Sep-Oct 2008
The standard approach to advisement in most departments at Rowan University is to assign students to faculty members. Some departments may have one person with release time to do all the advising. Properly examining the courses and programs in which undergraduate students are progressing is an appropriate topic of concern. One way to handle such an assessment is the three-tiered advisement process described in this article. The combination of three methods of advising in regard to program progress enhances the department's capability to address student and course problems.
