Dian--Here is what we put together in response to your
1.Management/Economics Assessment as a discipline:
a. The persons responsible for program assessment for next year is Arne Kildegaard
(fall), Cyrus Bina (spring), and discipline coordinator.
b. To develop technical, analytical, and conceptual skills needed for business positions
and/or graduate studies (Management). To develop in students an understanding
of the economic system and to critically evaluate alternative techniques to
increase economic efficiency (Economic).
c. We assess our goal achievement
through the satisfactory completion of course examinations, the use of various
analytical tools and research methods to produce papers, prepare seminar
presentations, and complete class projects.
d. Our curriculum has become more flexible by adding 2
credit modules courses, having several variable research topics for students to
choose from, all management and economic majors will give a senior seminar, and
allowing some interdisciplinary course credits to count toward graduation. Our
assessment is a ongoing process and future modifications will be made.
of the senior seminar:
a. The goals for this course is for each student to do a
directed research, to organize data, and through the use of power point present
the information an organized/understandable manner before an audience.
seminar assessment is done through peer evaluation (students need to attend 14
presentations) and by the faculty advisor to the student.
c. At the current
time the seminar sessions are working well; however, as we add new faculty to
the discipline, we need to streamline the process.
