MCE Prepares Self-Study for HLC Visit
In preparation for the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) reaccreditation site visit during the 2010-2011 academic year, each unit in the University has been charged with preparing a self-study document. This document, prepared by the Program, Planning, and Review (PPR) Committee of the MCE, was tasked with providing an in-depth report on the College.
Included in the report is an overview of the MCE and its programs, students, service and engagement activities, resources, academic quality of students and faculty, and recommendations for the future.
One key component of the Self-Study is a summary of the assessment activities of the College. At both the College and Program level, the report outlines the mission and broad learning goals of the College and individual programs, as well as learning outcomes, and assessment activities directly relating to the learning outcomes, including:
- Assessment procedures and methods;
- Direct measure of student learning;
- Evaluative criteria (rubrics and instruments); and a
- Data summary.
Based on the findings of the assessment activities, program faculty are asked to discuss and recommend changes to the curriculum or courses based on the data. Finally, an implementation plan is put in place to enact these changes.
We appreciate and actively seek input and welcome your feedback. Please send any comments/suggestions/feedback to Dr. Karin Dittrick-Nathan, Child, Family, and School Psychology Program Chair and Assistant Clinical Professor at email@example.com.
