Student Achievement

Following Planning Accreditation Board (PAB) recommendations, Eastern Washington University Planning Faculty developed an Urban Planning Programs Student Achievement Assessment Plan. Part of this plan implements annual direct, integrative evaluations of graduating students' performance. All planning faculty jointly participate in this assessment. This rubric, consisting of the following categories, constitutes faculty assessment of students' capabilities at the ends of their course of study, as evdienced by demonstrated performance in core planning courses and capstone activities. For graduate students, this is their performace (both oral and written) in their Capstone studio course as well as on their thesis-equivalent research report, the oral defense of that product and their performance on a comprehensive oral examination which covers material from the core curriculum. The assessment categories are given below, and are based on faculty judgement of the student's grasp of the topic and their capability to apply it in an entry-level planning position.

Very Good Student exceed basic capabilities needed to perform well in an entry level planning position.
Good Student possess basic capabilities needed to perform well in an entry level planning position.
Fair Student understands basics of the material but may not be able to function independently without further mentoring in an entry level planning position.
Poor Student demonstrates gaps in basics of the material any will not be able to function independently in an entry level planning position without further mentoring.
Very Poor Student demonstrates serious gaps in basics of the material will likely not succeed in an entry level planning position without extensive mentoring.

Eastern Washington University takes pride in our applied focus in urban and regional planning. This report documents student achievement and provides public information on our Masters in Urban and Regional Planning.
