It will help institution to identify which reading, writing or mathematical skills need improvement. This will help students to understand what skill they are lacking and by concentrating on those skills they can improve. Also we will give greater emphasis more on those lacking skills in our general education curriculum in order to improve those skills.
By testing our seniors we can assess value added among our students’ growth in areas like reading, writing, critical thinking and mathematics skills. It will also help to make our case for accreditation.
It will further help FCCU to perform longitudinal analyses where we will look at freshmen to senior year changes in the skill levels of our students. Moreover, we will be able to compare our students’ performance with the norms from similar institutions abroad.
The student will get Rs 500/= if he/she scores marginally proficient or proficient on the Proficiency Profile test (reading, writing and mathematics skills).
