To help meet outcome assessments for SACS accreditation and institutional effectiveness, the abbreviated version of the ETS Proficiency Profile will be administered in January or February in capstone and senior-level courses.
Professors are requested to bring or meet their classes and assist with administering the assessment in the Testing Center* during a regular class period or designated time. There will be no make-ups. The assessment will take about 50 minutes.
This assessment measures the effectiveness of the general education curriculum in terms of reading, critical thinking, writing, and mathematics. This website will provide more information: http://www.ets.org/. Click on View Our Tests & Products, then View All Tests & Products, then ETS Proficiency Profile.
See this website for comparative data: http://www.ets.org/proficiencyprofile/scores/compare_data/proctored. Look under Clayton State's Carnegie classification of Bachelor's (Liberal Arts) Colleges I & II, then Seniors (more than 90 semester hours). Students are to be commended if they score at or above the national mean for seniors, 447.2. Scores range from 400 to 500.
Students will have the opportunity to print their individual score reports. Faculty will be emailed a group score roster after the assessment. Students are urged to complete at least 27 of the 36 questions so that their scores will be included in statistical analysis. Student incentives are encouraged.
Freshmen will be assessed in September 2018 in CSU 1000 courses that meet on the main campus.
