The University will verify student learning outcomes in accordance with the three policies: Admission Policy, Curriculum Policy, and Diploma Policy, as follows.
Assessment Policy for Courses of Study
- At the admission stage, we will determine whether students have acquired the abilities and aspirations required by the Admission Policy, based on the results of various entrance examinations, the contents of high school reports, etc., and questionnaires administered at the time of admission.
- Through orientational education such as introductory seminars and basic training, as well as efforts and results in small-class education and active learning opportunities, we will determine whether students have acquired a proactive, independent, and dynamic attitude to learning and the ability to think, make decisions, and express themselves to the level required for an undergraduate study program.
- Through foreign language assessment tests and experiences of overseas study, international internships, and volunteer activities, and the results of these, we will determine whether students have cultivated the skills to function successfully in the world and operate comfortably in international settings.
- We will use the results and assessments of educational and research activities, such as presentations of study and research in classes and seminars, various types of project-based learning (PBL), problem-solving fieldwork, thesis writing, and production of physical works to determine whether students have acquired the specialized knowledge and abilities required by the relevant faculty.
- We will use graduation theses, acquired course credits, performance assessments, and other means to determine whether students have acquired the necessary abilities required by the Diploma Policy.
- We will use employment status, involvement in extracurricular activities, graduation questionnaires, and other means to determine whether students have acquired the “practical wisdom for freedom.”
Assessment Policy for each subject
The student learning outcomes for each subject are measured based on the “Performance Assessment Methods and Criteria” specified in the syllabus to determine whether students have acquired the knowledge and abilities listed in the “Final Goals.”
