Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment

Office of Planning and Decision Support

MFT

The Major Field Assessment is designed to provide incentives for institutions to improve the quality of undergraduate major field programs as evaluated by the performance of graduates on approved examinations. Programs are considered successful if they score at or above a comparison score. All undergraduate programs will be reported once during the 2015-2020 cycle with the exception of licensure exams, which will report annually. Approximately 20% of programs at the University are tested each year. See schedule below for the years each program will test.

All students graduating in the fall and spring semesters of a testing year are required to be tested. The Office of Assessment may consider individual student exemptions for extreme circumstances. Exemptions will not be given for simple inconvenience.
