Major Field Test


The Washburn University School of Business, as part of its continuous improvement efforts and consistent with the requirements of Washburn University, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), administers surveys and tests to its students, graduates, staff and external constituents. For currently enrolled students, the tests and surveys are required as part of coursework or as program and degree graduation requirements separate from coursework, and independently of the catalog under which the student intends to graduate. Tests may be administered during regularly scheduled classes, or at other time separate from class meeting times. 

The Major Field Test is a degree requirement for all business students and is taken by students enrolled in our capstone business course, BU449 Strategic Management. This test is prepared by Educational Testing Services (ETS). The content of the Major Field Tests reflects the basic knowledge and understanding gained in the core undergraduate curriculum. The tests are two-hour, multiple-choice examinations designed to assess mastery of concepts and principles as well as knowledge expected of students at the conclusion of a major in specific subject areas. They go beyond measurement of factual knowledge, however, because they also evaluate students' ability to analyze and solve problems, understand relationships, and interpret material.

For the last several semesters the School mean has been at or above the 80th percentile. We are pleased with these scores as they confirm what we have always believed, that our students are getting a great education from the School of Business! Approximately 470 institutions and over 80,000 students participate in the administration of the Major Field Test. The following students have scored in the top 25 percent nationally since we began testing in the summer of 2002. Way to go students, we are proud of you!

During the last academic year, Washburn students who individually scored in the 75th percentile and above
