Tiffin University’s graduate and undergraduate School of Business ranks well-above national average in Peregrine Exam
As part of program learning outcomes assessment, Tiffin University’s School of Business implemented the Peregrine Exam in fall 2017, which nationally norms TU business students against students from other Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACSBP).
For the past two semesters, Tiffin University students performed extremely well in the exam. In fall 2017, undergraduate Tiffin University School of Business students scored on average 11 percentage points higher in each competency area as compared to other participating ACBSP Institutions. In spring 2018, students scored on average 7.95 percentage points higher in each competency area as compared to other participating ACBSP Institutions.
Graduate Tiffin University students scored on average 21.77 percentage points higher in each competency area as compared to other participating ACBSP Institutions in the spring of 2018.
The exam, designed for U.S.-based schools, is administered by Peregrine Academic Services and provides summative assessment services for business administration academic programs and learning outcomes. Peregrine Academic Services places a high priority on ensuring the validity and reliability of the assessment services. The unique exams include 10 questions for each topic, as questions are selected at random from the test bank with 50-200 questions per topic. Topics include accounting, management, marketing, finance, leadership, statistics, economics and more.
Tiffin University’s School of Business Dean Terry Sullivan said, “The test results are not only a testament to the quality of instruction being provided by the faculty at Tiffin University, but also exemplify the dedication and commitment of Tiffin University students to their academic studies.”
The exam also provides insight into core competencies that need to be strengthened within each of Tiffin University’s School of Business programs of study.
