Measures of Student Achievement








Student Achievement

One of the Goals listed in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning's Strategic Plan is “Training Future Planning Professionals” with the corresponding objective “to ensure that the curriculum trains students to (1) become grounded in planning theory and methods; (2) pursue in-depth selected sub-fields of planning; and (3) acquire general skills so as to be an effective planner within the profession." The program used an alumni survey to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and values gained by the graduates from 2007-2011. 43 alumni responded with a response rate of 44%. The questions measuring this objective in the survey were:

(1) Did you receive enough breath of knowledge from required courses in your MURP program? The percentage of responding alumni strongly agreeing with this statement was 78.9%

(2) Did you receive enough depth of knowledge in your chosen area of concentration? The percentage of responding alumni strongly agreeing with this statement was 86.8%
