Historical Overview of ETS Proficiency Profile at FAMU
In an effort to evaluate General Education outcomes at FAMU, all incoming freshmen and graduating seniors are asked to participate in the test. Participation is critical in helping the University to evaluate general education outcomes. The test was first administered at FAMU in 2006. The University has since participated in the test on an annual basis. Starting in 2009 every Fall and Spring semester, incoming freshmen and graduating seniors respectively, participate in the test. For freshmen, the test is administered one week before classes begin in the Fall and remains open until the end of September. Freshmen are solicited using multiple means, both virtually and in-person. Similarly, the test is administered to graduating seniors in the Spring. The test is administered the week following spring break and remains open until commencement. Graduating students are solicited using multiple means, both virtually and in-person.
