Assessment Approaches

The Coggin College of Business operates a college-wide strategy to assess its learning objectives. Each of the 11 programs of study (housed in 4 departments) has adopted these as its learning objectives, which link to the university's three broad learning categories. While each of these objectives is differentially emphasized in the various programs of study, they are common to the core body of knowledge provided to all students majoring in a sub-field of business. In addition, each program of study has a discipline-specific learning outcome reflecting disciplinary learning students gain in their specific field of interest. The college utilizes a multi-year time horizon to assess alternating objectives. This time horizon corresponds to the AACSB (re)accreditation cycle.

Written and oral communication are assessed by student performance during ENC3202 Professional Communication for Business, using standardized, anchored grading rubrics.

Ethical reasoning is assessed via a written essay in response to a case in MAN4720 Strategic Management and Business Policy.

Discipline-specific learning in the major field of study as well as content knowledge in the functional areas of business is assessed via the Major Field Test in Business, an instrument of the Educational Testing Service (ETS). It is administered in each student's last term in his/her program of study via the capstone policy course. A measure of discipline-specific learning in the major field of study is being developed. Functional business content knowledge is measured by the overall score, as well as the score on each of eight assessment indicators (subscores), including economics, management, quantitative analysis, finance, marketing, legal/social environment, and information systems.

Assessment mechanisms may change over time.
