Tiffin University’s School of Business implemented the Peregrine Exam as part of a program learning outcomes assessment. The exam provides insight into core competencies that need to be strengthened, and nationally norms TU business students against students from other Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACSBP).
For the past three semesters, Tiffin University students performed exceptionally well in the exam. In fall 2019, undergraduate Tiffin University School of Business students scored on average 8.63 percentage points higher in each competency area as compared to other participating ACSBP Institutions. In spring 2018, TU students scored on average 7.95 percentage points higher, and in fall 2017, TU students scored on average 11 percentage points higher in each competency area as compared to other participants.
The online exam is administered by Peregrine Academic Services and evaluates students’ retained knowledge in a range of academic disciplines. The exam includes 10 questions for each topic, selected at random from the test bank with 50-200 questions per topic. Topics include accounting, management, marketing, finance, leadership, statistics, economics and more.
“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,” said Terry Sullivan, Dean of TU’s School of Business.
