We will administer a post-assessment test in all Introduction to Criminal Justice (CRJU 2300) classes in conjunction with your final exam. The assessment tool will consist of 30 questions designed to assess the knowledge gained in the course. It is not a scored exam that will reflect on your overall grade in the course. It is designed to assist our Department in making changes that will benefit future students taking the Introduction to Criminal Justice course. Please take this assessment test seriously and help us accurately assess ourselves in the classroom.
