All undergraduates at UMKC are required to participate in assessment activities to help determine the effectiveness of University programs. All students after completing 80 credit hours are eligible to take the required Academic Profile exam and graduating seniors take the major-field exit exam in their last semester. Such testing is required by the University’s governing bodies and accrediting agencies. Other components of assessment include the Written English Proficiency Test and surveys of alumni and undergraduates. This information provides a basis for reviewing and evaluating UMKC’s programs and services.
