Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities.
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.
No calculators, computers, or materials other than a writing instrument may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.

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.

Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.

As an essential element
of the learning process, students are expected to come to class prepared and,
to contribute meaningfully to class discussion. Successful completion of
this course as outlined in the course rubric will be assessed not only through
examinations and presentations, but also through student-instructor dialogue
throughout the course.
Assessment of outcomes is required
by our regional accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), and our
business school accreditor, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and
Programs (ACBSP). To assess our business program, Park University’s School of
Business has implemented a Major Field Test using both the Educational Testing
Service (ETS) and Peregrine Academic Services.
The ETS Major Field Test (MFT) in
Business assessment and the Peregrine Common Professional Component (CPC)
assessments will provide the School of Business with data which we use to
benchmark to comparative programs and make changes in our program designs.
These major field tests measure your entire business education and are not
intended to be the course final exam in your capstone course. We use these
results to redesign and improve our programs. Please give your MFT your best
What is the test like?
The ETS-MFT and CPC tests consist of
multiple-choice questions, about half of which are based on short case-study
scenarios. Questions employ materials such as diagrams, graphs and statistical
data. Mathematical operations do not require a calculator. Most of the
questions require knowledge of specific information drawn from material
delivered in courses in marketing, management, finance and managerial
accounting, or a combination of these. There are sample questions available in
My Park at the bottom of Request for ETS-MFT Proctor e-form.
What happens next?
The Park School of Business is
using a random sampling system to assign capstone courses to the major field
tests. You may take one, but not both of these assessments. Your professor will
know and confirm if your class is scheduled for testing within the first week
of the course. The assessment may be taken via proctored examination centers,
taken online, or face-to-face in our course. These are typically administered
during the 5th or 6th week of the course.
If you are required to take a
proctored assessment, you can access the proctor request form through My Park.
