The Assessment and Advising Center programs currently focus on assessment testing, life skills workshops, and college skills workshops. Its role is to assess and assist students as they make the transition to Massachusetts Maritime Academy, progress through their academic programs, and enter the workforce.
Academic Advising is available at the Assessment and Advising Center. Two administrative advisers are available Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. during the regular academic semesters to assist students with general counseling, including degree audits, progress checks, planning semester coursework, course selection, and general questions about MMA requirements and degree programs. The advisers also interface with the Career Services Office and the Registrar's Office and can therefore assist students in a variety of career and academic areas.
Please note: These advisers do not replace faculty advisers. They offer supplemental advising and cannot clear students for registration, which only faculty advisers can do.

The ETS Proficiency Profile (formerly MAPP) test is administered to incoming freshmen and graduating seniors. This assessment tool allows us to gauge the educational impact of our programs on specific cohorts and between cohorts. The examination will contribute significantly to improvement within our programs and to institutional research. For more information on the examination, please visit our ETS Proficiency Profile page.
The Assessment and Advising Center can schedule individual or group proctoring when a student or faculty member has a critical need. Because our ability to provide this service is limited, we reserve it for only the most pressing needs. It should not be viewed as a resource for routine, planned testing. Please contact Dr. Patrick directly if you find it necessary to make a request for proctoring.
