Every five years, as a part of the departmental review process, academic departments administer an alumni survey. A sample of departmental alums who have graduated within the last five years is taken. In some cases, a sample of 10 years of departmental alums is taken. The alumni survey allows departments to indirectly evaluate student learning and satisfaction with the major program and identify areas that require change.
Mission Effectiveness Survey
The Mission Effectiveness Survey is completed by students before graduation during the middle of their final spring semester. This survey is administered during a graduation preparation fair where students receive information about graduation and complete necessary graduation materials. The survey focuses on the overall educational experience students have received at Clarke. The survey measures outcomes of the University Mission such as intellectual rigor, spirituality, social responsibility, and diversity.
