The Counseling Program Dashboard contains continuous systematic program evaluation process as well as the aggregate assessment of student learning outcomes required for both the School Counseling and the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Programs.

The assessment plan includes all points throughout a student’s program of study where assessment occurs; the means by which assessment occurs; the assessment measures and formats utilized; process by which remediation occurs as needed, following summative assessments; and the means by which data is collected, analyzed, and utilized for curriculum and program improvement.

The NKU Continuous Counseling Program Assessment Process involves three separate but interacting components, (A) The Program Transition Points, (B) The Program Level Assessment Plan, and (C) The Curricular Level Assessment Plan.  These three components work together to provide timely data with which the faculty can evaluate both the progress of students and the health of the program.
