Evaluation of Student Performance

Speech-Language Pathology Program

Students in the Speech-Language Pathology Program will be evaluated based upon academic and clinical performance at regular intervals during each quarter of study and throughout their program. Both formative and summative assessment techniques will be applied. Summative assessment will include traditional grades and written feedback for individual assignments, and final course grades at the end of a term or practicum experience. Formative assessment will include regular evaluation of student performance relative to learning objectives that reflect entry-level knowledge and skills as outlined by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The use of both summative and formative assessment media across academic and clinical curricula will ensure student learning and preparation to enter the field of speech-language pathology.
