For this course, the core assessment is a Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG495. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.

"Park University?s School of Business has implemented a Major Field Test to assess the Business program. Within the accreditation standards for both Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), Park University is required to assess program outcomes.
The method used for School of Business programs is the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Major Field Test (MFT) in Business assessment. This assessment will provide the School of Business with results that can be used to benchmark comparative programs and identify how well Park University students score on a standardized assessment. Scores are monitored over time and this data leads directly to changes in program design. It should be noted that this assessment is NOT the course final exam.
What is ETS-MFT?
The Major Field Test provides comprehensive outcomes assessments designed to measure the critical knowledge and understanding obtained by students in the School of Business graduate (MBA695) and undergraduate (MG495) capstone courses. These 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.
The MFT Proficiency Profile assesses student learning while making the best use of Park?s resources by measuring all the skills we value ? critical thinking, reading, writing and quantitative ? in a single test. The MFT Proficiency Profile is designed for national colleges and universities to assess their business outcomes."
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam.
