Assessment Coordinator for the History Undergraduate Major: Dr. Ann Kuzdale (773-995-2252)
The following standards for measuring the program effectiveness of the undergraduate
major in history are in effect:
Program Assessment Exam—final semester. All history undergraduate students must take a comprehensive content
and skills assessment test in their final semester before graduation. The purpose
of this test is to measure whether our students have achieved satisfactory content
knowledge in pre-modern and modern history, as well as subject areas in United States,
Western Civilization, and World Civilization. This test is intended to measure program
standards and will not affect a student’s ability to graduate.
Research paper on file. All students will be asked to submit a research paper to be
kept on file in the department for accreditation purposes. This paper must have received
a grade of at least a “B” or must be revised with the appropriate faculty member to
reach this standard.
Alumni Surveys. One year after graduating, the history department will contact its
graduates to answer a survey indicating how well its program facilitated their career
and/or educational goals.
Employer Survey. One year after graduating, the department will wish to contact the
employers of its graduates to determine the degree to which our program has contributed
to their success on the job.
