Annual Assessment of Students
The MA faculty review the performance of all MA students at the midpoint in the academic program. Full-time MA students will be evaluated in February. Part-time MA students will be evaluated in October of the second-year in the program, and on an annual basis thereafter until the program is completed. Students are notified, in writing, of the outcome.
The PsyD faculty review the performance of all students at the end of each academic year. Students are notified, in writing, of the outcome. To support student growth and progress, a midyear assessment is also conducted for students in the first year of the program and for those continuing students who are identified by the faculty as being at risk.
Assessments are inclusive of academic and clinical performance, expectations of professional behavior and research progress. If warranted, students may be placed on probation and/or an educational development plan may be developed. Students who fail to meet academic, clinical or research requirements or professional behavior expectations may be dismissed from the program.
