1 Master of Arts in Theological Studies Assessed by: Faculty of the Department of Bible, Theology & Ministry Cycle of Assessment: Fall 2013-Spring 2014 Mission Statement: Affiliated with the Evangelical Friends tradition, the Malone University Department of Theology is rooted firmly in the protestant evangelical heritage of the historic, ecumenical, and Trinitarian Christian faith. We affirm the authority of the Bible as God s Word and are committed to the saving mission and ministry of Jesus Christ and His Church. Our distinctive mission is to provide theological education to women and men, enabling them to deepen and clarify their understanding of the Christian faith, cultivate and increase their love of God, and respond obediently to Christ s call to faithfulness, discipleship, and ministry. Program Goals: Goal 1: Students will demonstrate an ability to interpret, embody, and teach the Biblical story faithfully and with competence. Learning Objectives: Specifically, students will be able to: 1A) Know the grand drama of the biblical story including key persons, events, and themes; 1B) Know how to integrate grammatical/historical and theological (and specifically Christological) principles of biblical interpretation; 1C) Understand the unity of the Christian biblical canon; 1D) Understand the ethical mandates of scripture in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Goal 2: Students will, through careful study of Christian history and theology, strengthen their ability to serve in the Church s ministry (whether by word or deed) as representatives of the Apostolic Faith. 1 P age

2 Learning Objectives: Specifically, students will be able to: 2A) Know the broad contours of our Christian theological heritage in order to engage it, consistently, as a resource that can guide biblical interpretation and the practice of ministry; 2B) Understand a theology and spirituality of human persons from within the context of creation, fall, and redemption in order to develop skills for competent and compassionate ministry; 2C) Become familiar with current areas of theological disagreement in order to clarify their own convictions and learn to engage in constructive dialogue with people of differing convictions; 2D) Understand how theological reflection helpfully informs and enriches prayer, worship, and witness. Goal 3: Students will cultivate the kind of habits necessary for competent service in Christian ministry, such as: careful reading, critical thinking, research, writing, speaking, and leadership. Learning Objectives: Specifically, students will be able to: 3A) Cultivate a faith that intentionally seeks understanding; 3B) Develop an aptitude for critical thinking; 3C) Learn to discriminate high-quality texts and other scholarly sources from those of questionable integrity; 3D) Learn to communicate clearly and convincingly in written and/or spoken form in order to lead, competently, in various Christian ministries. NOTE ON ASSESSMENT METHODS: Assessment for the MATS program is accomplished on a rotating basis, i.e., a single course might assess only one learning objective. After a complete rotation of all courses, all objectives will have been assessed. During this current rotation, Goal 1D and Goal 3D were the focus of assessment. One professor assessed all learning objectives for Goal 1 in his class. Thus, this current report will only show limited data. (Although this rotation will continue, the MATS program will close down after the academic year due to low enrollment.) 2 P age

3 Program Intended Learning Outcomes (PILO) Means of Program Assessment & Criteria for Success Summary of Data Collected Use of Results 1A. Know the grand drama of the biblical story including key persons, events, and themes Testament (via a research paper). Of the five students evaluated, all five students earned a score of 7 or higher. 7-9 = 5 students (100%) 4-6 = 0 students (0%) The data suggests that 100% of at an advanced level. The Department is pleased with the overall competency of these students. No changes are required students gave THEO 622 a 4.4 rating on objective 1A. 4.4 is significantly higher than the 3.75 goal. No changes are required 3 P age

4 1B. Know how to integrate grammatical/historical and theological (and specifically Christological) principles of biblical interpretation Testament (via a research paper). Of the five students evaluated, all five students earned a score of 7 or higher. 7-9 = 5 students (100%) 4-6 = 0 students (0%) The data suggests that 100% of at an advanced level. The Department is pleased with the overall competency of these students. No changes are required students gave THEO 622 a 4.6 rating on objective 1B. 4.6 is significantly higher than the 3.75 goal. No changes are required 4 P age

5 1C. Understand the unity of the Christian biblical canon Testament (via a research paper). Of the five students evaluated, all five students earned a score of 7 or higher. 7-9 = 5 students (100%) 4-6 = 0 students (0%) The data suggests that 100% of at an advanced level. The Department is pleased with the overall competency of these students. No changes are required students gave THEO 622 a 4.4 rating on objective 1C. 4.4 is significantly higher than the 3.75 goal. No changes are required 5 P age

6 1D. Understand the ethical mandates of scripture in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Testament (via a research paper), as well as in THEO 621 Ethics of the New Testament. Of the eleven students evaluated, eight students earned a score of 7 or higher, while three students earned a score in the middle tier. 7-9 = 8 students (72.7%) 4-6 = 3 students (27.3%) The data suggests that 73% of at an advanced level, which is lower than the goal. If the MATS program were to continue, the required readings in THEO 621 would be revised to strengthen this score, and the lectures in THEO 622 would similarly be revised. students gave THEO 622 a 3.0 rating on objective 1D. 3.0 is significantly lower than the 3.75 mark that we aim for. Only 3 of the 5 students answered this question; the other two marked not applicable. The question was worded to focus on the moral vision of Jesus and his apostles; thus, students may not have seen a connection with the OT theology they studied. This does suggest, however, that the Department needs to explain better the connection between the ethical imperatives of the OT and those of the NT. If the MATS program were to continue, we would work to address this issue. 6 P age

7 3D. Learn to communicate clearly and convincingly in written and/or spoken form in order to lead, competently, in various Christian ministries. Students were assessed in both THEO 543 Communicating the Gospel (via a final sermon) and THEO 547 Spiritual Care (via a research paper). Of the ten students evaluated, seven students earned a score of 7 or higher, two earned a score of 4-6, while one student earned a score in the lowest tier. 7-9 = 7 students (70%) 4-6 = 2 students (20%) 1-3 = 1 student (10%) The data suggests that 70% of at an advanced level. Although this does not quite achieve the minimum benchmark, the other two students received a score of 6 and thus were very close to the benchmark. The one student who scored in the lowest level was advised to take a remedial writing course; he agreed. If the MATS program were to continue beyond this year, we would want to look closely at writing competency for new students entering the program, as this appears to be a potential issue with current grad students. 7 P age
