(Objectives 7, 8, 9)
To provide statewide insights into the perceived quality of our UNK administrators, alumni and members of the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) were invited to serve on the EDAD Advisory Committee. An agenda was mailed prior to the meeting and time was allocated for concerns or comments. At the annual meeting, committee members were requested to react to a set of questions that focus on their perceptions of UNK graduates. Responses were compiled, analyzed, and evaluated. The members of the committee rated the graduates high in all areas.
Four committee members completed assessments. The following questions were posed: (1) Graduates have the knowledge and ability to promote the success of all students. (2) The graduates are sought as candidates for administrative positions. (3) State educators are both aware and have respect for the EDAD graduate. Based on agree or disagree, all committee members responded, agree, on all questions. On questions four, Summative Evaluation: How would you rank the EDAD graduates at the University of Nebraska at Kearney? Ratings were: two responded exemplary and two responded excellent.
The findings indicate that our department goals and objectives are being met by our department offerings.
