The department uses multiple measures to assess outcomes, both in the department’s assessment of students and in its assessment of the program.
Assessment of students is accomplished by using:
• Student performance in courses
• Student course evaluations using the IDEA system (http://www.usu.edu/aaa/evaluations_all.cfm)
• Year-over-year comparisons of a comprehensive assessment exam given to seniors in the Chem 4990 capstone course.
• Course by course assessments: view here
Assessment of the program is accomplished by using:
College of Science Senior Exit Survey: (http://www.usu.edu/science/htm/senior-exit-survey)
