Major Field Assessment for Performance Funding

The hill

Major Field Assessment, as it relates to THEC Performance Funding, is designed to provide incentives for institutions to improve the quality of major field programs as evaluated by the performance of graduates on approved assessments. While all departments must be accounted for, the type of assessment used is left up to the discretion of the department. Departments may use any number of available standardized instruments or may choose to develop an assessment on their own. These instruments may also be used for annual programmatic assessment.
