Summary of Results from Implementing Indirect Measures of Student Learning: Performance Target Was…
Met Not Met
1. Admission and Retention Policy

Actual retention rate of an average of 55% in the Accountancy program being below the target of 80% is justified by the thrust to continuously improve Board exam. performance, retaining only those students who have the potential to be licensed. Nevertheless, the grant of probationary status to students who did not meet the grade requirement, as well as to those who failed the qualifying examinations for higher levels, cushions the impact of the stringent policy. In addition, students who did not qualify for the BSA program were given the option to enroll in the non-Board BS Accounting Technology program.
X
2. Evaluation of Program/Curricula and Syllabi

The Dean, Program Chair, Coordinators and faculty members met and reviewed the Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA) and BS Accounting Technology curricula for school year 2011-2012. Revisions were made to address the needs and requirements of business and industry. Overlaps in syllabi were eliminated, and recent developments and changes in accounting and auditing standards, as well as in taxation, were factored in in syllabi revision. Internet and e journal materials have been added to the list of references. Curricular changes were communicated to CHED as addenda or amendments to programs.

In the exit interview/mock job interview of graduating students in school year 2011-2012 the curricula of the BSA and BS Accounting Technology programs were rated as “Excellent,” together with the Teaching Staff, Student Services and University Facilities.
