Strengths and Shortcomings of Accountability-Based TPP Evaluation Systems

As of the writing of this report, the data below is representative of all students enrolled in both the previous 48 hour Counseling and Psychology track as well as students enrolled in the new 60 credit hour Clinical Mental Health track. Student data was presented in this format to reflect how the departments current student enrollment provided important context for the CAP and has impacted specific data points such as CPCE Exit Exam scores and stakeholder surveys such as the alumni and site supervisor/ employer surveys. In the Fall of 2014 the Counseling Psychology track reported 85 students (80 continuing, 4 returns, and 1 new) and the CMHC track reported 37 students (22 continuing, 2 returns, and 1 new). In the Fall of 2015 the Counseling Psychology track reported 14 students (1 continuing, 13 returns, and 0 new) and the CMHC track reported 50 continuing, 4 returns, and 16 new). As the department phases out the Counseling Psychology track, students who graduate from this degree track will no longer impact enrollment data, as well as all other data point assessments. Future CAPs will reflect only those students enrolled in the 60 credit hour Clinical Mental Health program. Enrollment Data 5 Student demographic data is collected by the University Office of Research and Assessment and provided to the department via the program Tableau Public.
