Student Involvement in Assessment

Because we are committed to integrity and Christian stewardship, Phoenix Seminary engages in systematic evaluation of its effectiveness in producing graduates who possess the knowledge, skills and character indicated in our Handbook, Web site and other publications. This ensures that published student learning outcomes are being met, protecting students from false claims about their educational experience. It is also foundational to the Seminary’s credibility with those who call, employ, and commission our alumni for Christian service. To facilitate on-going evaluation of our institutional effectiveness, students are asked to complete surveys and other assessment tools. These assist the faculty, administration, and Board in evaluating program, curriculum, and course design, effectiveness, and content, but have no impact on students’ grades or academic standing. Periodically, in connection with evaluation by our accrediting agencies, students are also asked to complete additional assessment instruments.
