C. Fajardo

National University (UNITED STATES)
This study will analyze the results of two indirect measures of assessment in the Bachelor Science, Major in Accountancy program for academic year 2009-2010 at National University. This will include analysis of the monthly students’ self-assessment of learning on three items: (1) I gained significant knowledge about this subject, (2) My ability to think critically about topics in this class has improved, and (3) I can apply what I learned in this course beyond the classroom. In addition, it will analyze results of the Alumni Survey conducted by Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) to determine how well the program learning outcomes prepare graduates for entry into the accounting profession specifically on the questions: (1) Do graduates get employment after graduation? (2) How important is your degree from National University in helping you with professional advancement?
