Each spring semester the department assesses the graduate program. This assessment process includes gathering data from our students via an annual review. The annual review is designed to facilitate students’ progress by providing timely feedback regarding their overall performance. The process allows graduate students and faculty to discuss student achievements and to address programmatic questions or concerns. The online Annual Review form allows students to highlight information regarding their academic progress and accomplishments (career goal, honors and awards, conference presentations, publications, research experience, teaching experience) and to share their plans for upcoming year.
In preparation for the review, all graduate students are required to complete the Annual Review for Graduate Students form, and attach your current Curriculum Vitae (C.V). You will be able to attach your C.V. at the end of the online form. Both of these documents will be forwarded to your advisor. The deadline for completion is on or before April 15th.
Annual Review Process:
- Students complete the online Annual Review form and attach their C.V. by April 15th.
- Faculty advisors contact students to schedule a meeting to discuss their annual review and evaluation by May 1st.
- A summary of the evaluation will be sent to the student and placed in the student’s file.
- The faculty will also share information about the student’s progress at the department’s annual graduate assessment meeting in early May.
