The School of Media Arts & Studies carries out assessment of learning objectives though capstone courses in each of its five undergraduate majors— Games and Animation, Integrated Media, Media and Social Change, Music Production Recording Industry, Integrated Media, and Screenwriting and Producing.
In addition, the School mounts focus groups conducted among graduating seniors each year. These provide an opportunity for self-evaluation of the achievement of learning objectives by students.
The School’s Assessment Committee meets regularly and in Fall Semester reviews learning objectives for possible modification. These reviews are based upon data collected in the previous year’s assessment process. Particularly important is the report obtained from the previous Spring’s focus group studies.
The results of assessment activities are collected and summarized by the Assessment Committee of the School and recommendations for curricular adjustments are passed to the Undergraduate Committee.
