Graduate program directors and administrators utilize direct and indirect methods to measure program effectiveness. This webinar will detail a universal methodology designed to collect unbiased direct and indirect program assessment data for students in both master’s and doctoral programs strategically using placeholder (zero-credit) courses to assess graduate students’ progress toward degree completion. Within a college of arts and science, graduate students study a wide range of fields and being able to track each student effectively allows for accurate and efficient reporting of data and for data-based decision-making.
