Each year, students at schools of Business and Management around the country participate in national tests that are designed to “demonstrate the effectiveness of your program and evaluate students’ mastery of their major field of study.” According to the test administrators,
“The ETS® Major Field Tests are comprehensive undergraduate and MBA outcomes assessments designed to measure the critical knowledge and understanding obtained by students in a major field of study. The Major Field Tests go beyond the measurement of factual knowledge by helping [to] evaluate students’ ability to analyze and solve problems, understand relationships and interpret material from their major field of study.”
Graduate students within our very own School of Business and Management recently took this test and the results are in, courtesy of faculty member Don Campodonico:
- The 288 high individual score is the highest every attained by
an NDNU student placing that student in the 99th percentile of the
>25,000 students who have taken the exam through June 2012.
- Six (6) of the sixteen participants exceeded the individual mean
score of 248.8, while a total of 10 participants scored less than the
248.7 ETS-MFT individual mean.
- Two of the five discipline specific mean percentage correct
scores were greater than the ETS mean (Management and Accounting).
Many of our undergraduate students continue on to graduate school, so these results may have personal implications as well as representing a chance for all of us to celebrate within the School of Business and Management. Well done, MBA students and faculty!
