           I.     Assessment Activities:

A. Component Area Goals: The Master of Science in Nursing Program’s
   component area goals are designed to be congruent with the National
   League for Nursing Accrediting Commission’s criteria for accreditation.
   These component area goals are evaluated according to the School of
   Nursing’s Systematic Evaluation Plan which can be found in Appendix A.
   The component area goals are as follows.

           1.     Mission - The mission and goals of the College of Nursing
                  and Health Professions are consistent with the mission and
                  goals of Marshall University.
           2.     Critical Thinking – As defined by the faculty, a
                  multidimensional, self-directed cognitive process that uses
                  knowledge as context, is criteria based, creative and

                  graduates.
           7.     Graduate Satisfaction – As defined by the faculty, the
                  degree to which the nursing program and its component

      C:      Assessment of Student Outcomes:

              A full assessment of the outcomes and results may be viewed in the
              Assessment of Student Outcomes Chart and multi-year trended data may
              be found in Appendix B.

              Most areas met or exceeded critical outcomes but two required attention.
              The first area that required attention was the standardized testing method
              for critical thinking. The Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal was
              re-evaluated by the Graduate Academic Standards and Planning
              Committee and was deemed not to adequately reflect the critical thinking
              abilities of the graduate level students. Beginning in the academic year
              2003-2004, critical thinking will be measured by the senior research
              project, clinical evaluations, and graduate and alumni surveys.

              The second area that was that of the comprehensive examination. The
              Graduate Academic Planning and Standards Committee elected to discard
              the comprehensive examination in favor of a more focused senior research
              project. The new research project will concentrate heavily on evidence-
              based outcomes.


                      II.    Senate Bill 653 Compliance:

           The MSN Program meets or exceeds the requirements set forth by Senate Bill
           653. Each component is an integral part of the curriculum and evaluated
           though the systematic evaluation plan (Appendix A).


                      III.   Plans for the Current Year

           The focus of the plans for the upcoming year will be to restructure the MSN to
           include an AD to MSN program to better meet the needs of the workforce.

Instructions: Under student outcomes (Column I) please list the most current student outcomes/competencies to be demonstrated by your graduates. These should be in your
assessment plan.
(Column II) Person/office responsible: If someone specific has been designated to collect the various pieces of evidence, please list their names in this column.
(Column III) Assessment Tool or Approach: Here you will need to designate the assessment measures you are using to assess the particular outcome. Measures/tools may include
term papers, parts of essay tests, internship results; class projects; objective tests; standardized/normed or other licensure tests, or a variety of other measures that may indicate
competence in a particular objective.
(Column IV) Standards/Benchmark: Here you may indicate a particular set of standards you have set for completion or if you are developing benchmarks, please indicate what
those are. If you are using a national test, what are the indicators of competence. This also pertains to BOT Initiative #3 which asks us to measure students against some national
standard.
(Column V) Results/Analysis: Indicate what the results were utilizing the assessment tool/measure and applying it against the benchmarks set. Please be fairly specific here,
provide relevant data and a brief analysis.
(Column VI) Action Taken: Indicate any action taken based on the results/analysis you have completed.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Not all objectives have to be measured every semester or every year. All of your objectives should be measured in a 2 to 3 year cycle. Sometimes it
depends on when particular courses are offered as to when objectives can be measured. A helpful tool may be implementation of the courses/objective matrix. Some programs
have completed this some have not. If you are interested in completing one for your program, please let me know and this office will supply you with the forms and assist in
completing this document.
