We're Counting on You...to help build a better Marshall through assessment! This year, April 8 will be Marshall’s official “Assessment Day.” However, Assessment Day activities will focus on five major areas, most of which will occur between March 31 and April 18. These activities will be

  1. Senior Interviews – The Office of Career Services will be conducting interviews with graduating seniors from March 31 – April 18. The purpose of these interviews is to help us learn from you what you liked about Marshall and what we can do to improve the learning experience for future students. We also want to know what your plans are when you graduate and if there is anything else we might do to help you achieve your goals. Watch your email for an interview invitation from Denise Hogsett. The Senior Interview schedule also is listed under the “Activity Details” tab.
  2. Degree Program Surveys – Each student will receive a short survey asking for feedback regarding the quality of his/her learning in the university’s general education courses (for undergraduates) and in his/her degree program’s major courses (undergraduate and graduate students). The survey also will include an open-ended box asking for suggestions to improve the student experience at Marshall. Marshall and your degree program will use this information to help improve your learning experience, so please take five minutes (or less) to complete it! Watch for an email invitation from Mary Reynolds with a subject line that says, “Assessment Day Degree Program Survey.”
  3. Senior Assessments – Each college will administer senior assessments. The purpose of these assessments is to help Marshall evaluate its students’ ability to critically evaluate information, solve problems, and write effectively. We use the results of these assessments to continually improve our curricular experiences. We ask that all seniors participate in one of their college’s senior assessment sessions, unless you are randomly selected to take the CLA+. Watch for an email invitation from Mary Reynolds with a subject line that says, “Senior Assessment Registration” to register for a time convenient for you. You also can find the times and locations of your college’s senior assessments by clicking on the “Activity Schedules” tab and then clicking on the link for your college.
  4. 4. Collegiate Learning Assessment + (CLA+) – a percentage of graduating seniors from each college will be randomly selected to participate in the CLA+. In conjunction with the results of the senior assessment, Marshall uses the results of the CLA+ to assess how well it prepares students to critically evaluate information, solve problems, and write effectively. Each student who completes this assessment will receive feedback on his/her performance. Although these results will not become part of the student’s official university record, many students find that using CLA+ results can be helpful to them in job searches. So, if you are invited to represent your college by taking the CLA+, we encourage you to do so. You will receive an email invitation from Mary Reynolds with a subject line that says, “CLA+ Invitation/Registration” if selected. This will allow you to register for a time convenient for you. The CLA+ schedule also is listed under the “Activity Schedules” tab.
  5. Student Services Office and Other Assessment Day Surveys – 5. Student Services Office and Other Assessment Day Surveys – each year a number of offices on campus ask students to provide feedback regarding their services by taking Assessment Day Surveys. You will find links to this year’s surveys by clicking on the tab for “E-Surveys.” All students also will receive an email from Mary Reynolds with a link to this page.

Students who complete each of these events will be placed in prize drawings for an iPad-Mini (one will be won by a participant from each event, for a total of five) and ten $25 gift cards to the Marshall University Bookstore. Again, there will be ten per event, for a total of fifty. Click on the links provided above to view event schedules, prizes, and results from previous Assessment Days.
