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, 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 Council for Clinical Certification in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CFCC), an independent affiliate of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The use of both summative and formative assessments across academic and clinical curricula will ensure student learning and preparation to enter the field of speech-language pathology.
