Application for Candidacy -- The Counselor Education Committee and School Psychology Committee, made up of faculty members, meet on a regular basis. An on-going agenda item involves discussion and action related to student concerns and concerns about students. A student who wishes to become a candidate for the Master's or Specialist Degree will file an application for Admission to Candidacy with the Graduate Dean. Satisfactory completion of departmental requirements must be fulfilled. A judgment is made by the faculty related to the student's progress in meeting program goals using the Global Rating Form.
Multiple evaluators assess the following learning objectives and all Program Goals:
|Assessment: Applicants for Candidacy
||N = 41
||X = 4.0
||(1 - 5 scale, 5 = highest rating)
Interpretation and Recommendations:
The results indicate that those students making Application for Candidacy are effectively progressing through their program. Specific individual concerns are identified and a response is formulated. It became apparent as this procedure was implemented that the survey was not suited for the purpose of this evaluation. As a result the instrument (Global Rating Form) was completely revised. There is on-going commitment from the Department to continue the use of this assessment item.
