7 Complete College Tennessee Act of 2010 In January 2010, Tennessee passed the Complete College Tennessee Act (CCTA), a comprehensive reform agenda that seeks to transform public higher education through changes in academic, fiscal and administrative policies at the state and institutional level. At the center of these reforms is the need for more Tennesseans to be better educated and trained, while also acknowledging the state's diminished fiscal capacity to support higher education. (last updated January 2011) At the heart of the CCTA is a new Public Agenda for higher education which establishes the direct link between the state s economic development and its educational system. The overarching goal of the Public agenda is to have Tennessee meet the projected national average in educational attainment by The primary state policy levers for addressing the state s educational needs are a new funding formula, which incorporates outcomes in lieu of enrollment, a new Performance Funding program, which focuses on quality assurance, and the establishment of institutional mission statements or profiles, which distinguish each institution by degree level, program offerings and student characteristics. (last updated January 2011) The Complete College TN Act One Year Later: Moving Forward One year after the CCTA was signed, the Master Plan Steering Committee convened a Forum of committee members as well as leaders from higher education, business, state government, and national policy associations to assess where we have come from and where we are going. Through discussion facilitated by national experts, Forum participants considered the concerns, challenges and opportunities provided by the CCTA as institutions move forward, translating policy into strategic implementation.
8 The U.S. House of Representatives today passed a bipartisan amendment to prevent the U.S. Department of Education from bypassing Congress to implement the gainful employment regulation. The proposed regulation would restrict access to federal aid for over two million students at private sector colleges and universities in the next ten years. APSCU urges Congress to include the amendment as part of the final Fiscal Year 2011 Continuing Resolution legislation. The Kline-Foxx-Hastings-McCarthy-Payne amendment prevents the Department of Education from using federal funds through September 30, 2011 to implement the highly controversial "gainful employment" regulation. The amendment passed on a vote of 289 to136. The House vote sends a strong message to the Department: keep the door to opportunity open to the millions of non-traditional students who want options in higher education.
9 The language in Kentucky HB 125, as it is currently written, will require that Career Colleges become regionally accredited (SACS). Although this may help with credits transferring to other institutions in some cases (although that is not a given), it will defeat the major focus and need the Career Colleges serve in our Commonwealth. This bill will have a negative effect on 49% of the postsecondary colleges/universities in Kentucky. It will remove the choice for students that want the type of training Career Colleges offers. More importantly, the demographics that most Career Colleges serves sees our training as their only option for success. To eliminate this option for Kentuckians will have a devastating effect on our State reaching their long term higher educational goals, and dramatically reduce the number of trained individuals in Kentucky s workforce.
10 The outcomes assessment process, therefore, is the single most important component of IACBE accreditation.
11 Each degree program must have a distinct assessment process that encompasses the entire program.
12 Undergraduate programs must provide CPC coverage. Graduate programs can incorporate CPC topical instruction as a leveling course to ensure business competency.
13 Just for Dual-Accreditation? Academic assessment is not limited to dualaccreditation. All stakeholders, including regional accreditation organizations, government regulators, state licensing agencies, parents, and funding sources, expect program-level accountability with your higher learning program.
14 Therefore, we must talk about CPCs, Assessment, Accountability, and Benchmarking because the regulatory agencies and accreditation authorities require us to.
15 The CPCs 1. Marketing 2. Business Finance 3. Accounting 4. Management (Operations/Production Management, Human Resource Management, Organizational Behavior) 5. Legal Environment of Business 6. Economics 7. Business Ethics 8. Global Dimensions of Business 9. Information Management Systems 10.Quantitative Techniques/Statistics 11.Business Leadership 12.Business Integration/Strategic Management
16 We Have You Covered CPC-Based COMP Exams for Program-Level Direct Assessment
17 How the Direct Assessment Process Works Start of Program Student Completes Business Program End of Program Student takes the inbound COMP Test, Initial Benchmark. This is usually taken during their first business course. The change in scores is a direct measure of CPC competency change, both for the individual and at the program level. Student takes the outbound COMP Test, Final Benchmark. This is usually taken during the last course in the curriculum.
18 Exam Content Please refer to the brochure that lists the CPC topic subjects for each of the CPCs. Our report back to you will include a frequency analysis of missed questions by subject.
19 How Do Students Obtain Exam Keys? Self registration of the students based upon their course enrollment. In your course syllabus (or by to your students) at the appropriate activity for the CPC-based COMP exam, a sentence directs them to your school s micro-site (www.peregrineacademics.com/university_name) and they enter a common password (University Mascot Name). Students select their course (inbound/outbound tests associated with specific courses), enter their address and name, register, and then receive their Exam Keys by . The advantage to this process is that it saves time and reduces the chances for errors for both the University and for Peregrine Academic Services. The micro-site can be set so either the student pays or the university is billed monthly or at the end of the testing period. 19
20 Selfregistration Course Syllabus Activity #2 in this course is to complete the CPC-based Comprehensive Exam. The exam results are used by the university are part of its accreditation requirements.

27 Student Starts the Online Test A CPC-Based COMP Exam includes 120 questions, 10 questions per CPC topic. Questions are randomly selected from a test bank that includes questions per CPC topic. Typically, the exam takes about minutes. Two 15-minute breaks are allowed during the exam. A student has 48 hours to complete the exam and only three log-in attempts are allowed. Only the school administrator or course instructor can authorize a restart/re-take of the test once the 48 hours has elapsed and/or after three (3) log-in attempts.
28 Student Takes the Online CPC-Based Exam As the student takes the exam, the progress bar shows where the student is at within the test.

54 We Have You Covered International CPC-Based COMP Exams Globally Too!
55 Global Business Education How Does Your International Business Program Measure Up? Do you need an online Common Professional Component (CPC) test in a language other than English so that you can truly measure student competency instead of language proficiency? Do you need online competency testing for your business-related degree programs? Do you have specializations and business programs that do not match up well with traditional assessment tests? Peregrine Academic Services is the only comprehensive test provider with specific services for international schools with online tests that can be customized for your specific needs. assessment needs.
56 International Exams We offer our popular CPC-based comprehensive exams with different exam versions for US and for non-us universities using international test banks in English, French, Spanish, and German. Other language versions can be developed based upon your specific language requirements. Why test in English when you can test in your own native language or multiple languages for different campuses in several countries? We developed the exam material from leading textbooks within the industry of business education from McGraw-Hill and Cengage Learning. Test questions represent the core knowledge requirements for CPC competency and proficiency as defined by ACBSP and IACBE.
57 Why International Exams? When you test your students and English is not their primary language, do you want to be testing their proficiency in English or their proficiency with the business topics? Even if you want to test your students in English, do you want to test international business knowledge as opposed to using US-related test questions that will often confuse or frustrate your students? Clearly you want to assess student competency levels associated with the CPC topics identified by the accreditation authorities. By having native language tests, your results can more accurately reflect proficiency in the subject, rather than the language. With internationally focused test questions, your testing results will more accurately reflect your degree curriculum.
58 International CPC-Based COMP Exams We currently offer two CPC comprehensive exam versions for international schools and programs that are translated into languages other than English: undergraduate and graduate level exams (currently translated into German, Spanish, and French). Different versions based on the academic degree level is another accreditation requirement.
59 International Exam Content Please refer to the brochure that lists the CPC topic subjects for each of the CPCs. Our report back to you will include a frequency analysis of missed questions by subject.
60 We Have You Covered Academic Leveling Courses (Now with 2 Options)
61 Educational Transitions. CPC Based Course Student s Current Degree (may or may not be in business). Student enters your business degree program. How will you Bridge the Gap between the student s current business competency and the desired competency level you need for your business program?
62 Academic Leveling Course Options Option #1. Specific course within your business program curriculum, typically offered early in the students program. Cengage learning provides the custom-published e-books and then we provide the online unit pre-tests and post-tests (three units recommended). Your course faculty teach the course with graded assignments based upon the course material (we can help you with the course syllabus). Option #2. Independent study course, typically used as a prerequisite for your business majors. We use the same e-books. Each topic has a pre-test and post-test. Students submit their cumulative post-test results (12 tests) to you for academic credit/grading. There are no course assignments nor does this option require dedicated course faculty to teach the course.
63 ALC Option #2 With ALC OPTION #2, independent study course, there are no course assignments to grade. The student submits post-test results to the college/university for academic credit. You will not have to necessarily change your program curriculum to include Option #2 since the course is a prerequisite to a program of study.
64 ALC Option #2 Applications Transitions prerequisite between an Associates and Bachelors program Entry requirement before an MBA program Entry requirement before a Doctoral program
65 Flexible ALC Pricing OPTION #1: Specified Course within Your Program. $60 for the online section pre-test (3) and post-tests (3) $ for the custom-published e-books purchased from Cengage Learning University fees/charges for the course itself may also apply OPTION #2: Independent Study Course $120 for the online topic pre-tests (12) and post-tests (12) $ for the custom-published e-books purchased from Cengage Learning Note: Associates Degree alternative is less due to fewer topics included. The ALC can be COST-NEUTRAL to the School since the student purchases both the e-books and the online testing.
66 Academic Leveling Course Analysis With either ALC option, pre-test scores are used to determine a baseline competency level. Cumulatively, pre-test results can also be used as an inbound CPC-based COMP exam to be used with an outbound exam administered at the end of the student s program. Post-test scores are used to assess the learning outcomes and demonstrate proficiency. The difference between the pre-test and post-test scores is your direct measure of student learning within the course.
67 Academic Leveling Course Analysis Cumulatively, you can assess learning outcomes and measure instructional effectiveness.
68 Academic Leveling Course Analysis The cumulative pretest scores can be used as an inbound CPCbased COMP exam. Results can be compared with an outbound CPCbased COMP exam for program-level assessment.
69 We Have You Covered Student Surveys Pre-Graduation & Follow-up
70 Student Surveys to Assess Other Learning Outcomes Do you administer a pre-graduation student survey to obtain feedback regarding the quality and expectations of your business program from the perspectives of your customers?
