NCIDQ Practice Practicum Test portion of the Senior Show.
The National Kitchen and Bath Organization (NKBA), Endorsed College Program requires completed student project drawings to be submitted to NKBA annually for external review. Student project drawings are reviewed using the rubric. Student project drawings are selected from the FSID 401, a required course. Completed student project drawings are a direct measure of learning objectives of the program. NKBA returns the student drawings with accompanying scored review sheets. NKBA also reports UNK student rankings in comparison to student work submitted from all other NKBA endorsed colleges/universities.

The Interior Design Program at UNK is an endorsed program by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). The NKBA endorses college and university degree programs that fulfill curriculum requirements in seven substance areas. UNK’s program first became endorsed in September 1990 with the latest endorsement granted fall 2005. The program is reviewed every three years for compliance to curriculum criteria. NKBA grants Certified Kitchen and/or Bath Designer status to graduates completing NKBA testing, education, and professional practice requirements. The National Council for Interior Design Qualification grants NCIDQ to graduates completing the NCIDQ testing, education, and professional practice requirements.
Assessment of the Assessment Process
Faculty will annually assess the relevance and reliability of existing assessment measures to determine whether the assessment process accurately measures student outcomes and whether the measurements contribute to the specific skills, attitudes, knowledge and overall quality and preparedness deemed desirable of graduates.
The data for the assessment of the assessment plan is derived from external feedback from Field Place and Internship sponsors, requirements of external disciplinary accrediting bodies, and ongoing discussion by the department faculty surrounding teaching methods, content and student achievement. Our primary internal questions are:
- Are current measures of student assessment reflective of the competencies we expect our graduates to have?
- Are current methods of assessing students effective, and consistent, within the standards of our disciplines?
- Are there new or modified methods which will better assess what we want to learn about student outcomes?
