Academic Reporting - NPS Institutional Research

The objectives of NPS’ Student Engagement Initiative are to provide a common framework -- theoretically-based and known to be related to student achievement and learning -- to organize and understand existing data and information; to foster campus communication about student engagement issues; and to provide student engagement data to schools and departments to inform program reviews and processes of improvement.
Executive Education & Professional Development
In addition to the degree and certificate courses offered, Schools, Centers, Departments, Institutes and other organizations of NPS provide numerous short courses, seminars, conferences and executive education to meet specific sponsors’ needs. A short course is defined as one which is offered by a member of the NPS faculty, including those under contract to NPS, but the course or event does not produce a transcript grade.

The objective of the capstone experience at NPS is to be a culminating learning event integrating earlier components of students’ programs, and requiring original, analytical and critical thinking. The capstone in NPS’ programs is typically a thesis, although some programs use a capstone project, either individual or team-based.
A campus-wide approach to capstone assessment is in place using an online tool and rubric to assess the capstone against identified program outcomes, using both qualitative and quantitative measures.
Completion of the capstone assessment is part of the thesis/final report review and approval process in Python. NPS aims for two assessments per report.
The assessment results collected with the NPS CAP Instrument are distributed back to the academic units to be incorporated into program review processes.
The common CAP tool employs a set of program outcomes that are broadly similar across all NPS’ master’s degree programs.
