H. Assessment of programs and students

1. List student learner outcomes for each graduate or undergraduate degree program.

a. List the assessment tools or procedures used to assess students as they enter the degree program.

Students who begin their language study here move through the first and second year course sequence. If they have the requisite grade point average, they are accepted into the program of their choice and assigned an advisor. All students who enter our programs from other schools or who have outside work and/or living experiences are interviewed by an advisor as they begin study with us. They are assessed for their ability in the four skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) either by examination or interview and then placed in the most appropriate level. Some students – particularly heritage speakers of Spanish – opt for the CLEP exam, and they are placed at a level as per published standards in the university catalog (See “College Level Examination Program” in the Transfer Credit section). A post-CLEP test interview with Spanish faculty is also used to confirm placement. (There have been some problems associated with the students exercising the CLEP option and we are now considering not allowing the CLEP exam scores to stand in lieu of 2nd year coursework.)

b. List the assessment tools used to assess students exiting or graduating from the program.



  • Praxis-II for language teaching majors

  • Live Text e-portfolios for language teaching majors

  • Exit interviews for all of our majors

  • Exit surveys for all of our majors

  • Honors theses and projects for majors who participated in receiving departmental honors

c. List the assessment tools used to assess alumni of the program including results from alumni survey completed for this academic program review.

  • Alumni survey – see results below
