Activities, workshops, and surveys available for Assessment Day

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s 2014 Assessment Day is to be centered on the upcoming accreditation site visit in April. Students and employees are invited to participate in activities and workshops focusing on accreditation Wednesday, April 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:25 p.m. Classes will be dismissed to allow participation during the day. All evening classes will resume after 3:25 p.m.

In addition, staff satisfaction surveys as well as a co-curricular focused survey for students will be available online throughout the day on April 2.  

“Assessment Day is an opportunity for all Northwestern students and employees to not only evaluate and help improve Northwestern, but also to learn through various activities and workshops,” Brooke Taylor, director of assessment and institutional effectiveness, said.

This year there will be a strong emphasis on accreditation as we prepare for the upcoming site visit.”

Students who participate in the accreditation activities and workshops will be entered to win hundreds of dollars in prizes.

Students (excluding transfers), who have completed between 40 and 75 credit hours will be required to take the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Proficiency Profile/General Education Exam on Wednesday, April 2nd.  All of these selected students will receive a letter and an email directing them when and where to take the exam. Students taking the ETS Proficiency Profile will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $25 gift cards.

“The results gathered from the surveys and the knowledge gained in the workshops will play a large role in the advancement of Northwestern as a whole,” Taylor said.

Results from these surveys are used to inform and guide university administration in improving the Northwestern experience for the entire Northwestern community.
