    Nixon University Upgrades Its Evaluation and Assessment Policy


    In an attempt to push the standards of education even higher, Nixon University, a renowned name in online education has taken steps to improve its evaluation policy, thereby adhering to its mission of quality education for students all around the world.
    Nixon University is home to over 40,000 alumni worldwide and the numbers are growing every day. Students from all parts of the world can now enroll for higher education at the online University and pursue their dreams of a successful career. That said, the University needs an evaluation system that allows for the differences between educational standards and quality. The system should also be able to recognize areas for improvement and suggest solutions to problems that occur.
    Nixon University’s new Evaluation and Assessment policy contains provisions for the following:

    1. Number of reports to be submitted per subject
    2. Online presentations
    3. Criteria for score allocation
    4. Examination pattern

    In accordance with the new policy, the faculty of Nixon University suggested that reports and assignments should seek to explore the depth of understanding of the students and not just factual information. The examinations will now contain more case studies to assess how well students apply what they learn in the classroom to real world situations. Presentations seek to gauge the same abilities, with the addition of developing soft skills in the students that will help them when communicating with people in the professional world.

    The faculty of Nixon University consistently introduces new ways to enhance the educational experience for the students so that they may receive the highest quality of education available online.
