General Education Outcomes Assessment
Massachusetts Maritime Academy administers the ETS Proficiency Profile examination to incoming freshmen and graduating seniors immediately prior to their final semester at the institution.
The scores on this test help our Assessment Office and Institutional Research Office evaluate progress of students at MMA. It allows us to gather evidence of group performance over time (freshman to senior year) and of the Academy's performance over time (freshmen and seniors from year to year).
The examination measures college-level skills in critical thinking, reading, writing, and mathematics and provides institutional and comparative data that can be used for planning, accreditation, and program review and improvement.
For questions about the ETS Proficiency Profile examination process or about the test in particular, please contact Dr. Patrick at (508) 830-5066.
