Student Achievement

Student achievement is measured by graduates’ satisfaction with their overall, integrated educational experience. Exit surveys of recent graduates (approx. 90% response rate each year) show this satisfaction to be very high:

Student achievement is also demonstrated through the masters professional project or thesis, which is a requirement of the program and an integrated, capstone experience. The project/thesis is assessed by the faculty supervisor and either a second reader (for projects), who is usually a practicing professional, or an examining committee (for theses). In the last 4 years (Fall 2014 ~ Spring 2018), 98% of graduates produced a project/thesis that met or exceeded the program’s expectations. (This is defined here as a grade of 80%, which at SCARP indicates “normal standing for graduate students,” or higher).
