Abstract (Summary)

This descriptive, non-experimental, cross-sectional study inquired into the methods used to assess the student outcomes of master’s degree programs in organizational leadership. A survey questionnaire was submitted to the directors of master’s degree programs in organizational leadership at ninety-three not-for-profit institutions of higher learning in thirty-two states. Twenty-five program directors responded. The data indicated that the institutions that participated in the survey have implemented processes for assessing student outcomes from their degree programs. Those assessment processes have produced actionable knowledge, which the institutions have been able to use in making program improvements. The data also indicated that the degree programs provided graduates with actionable knowledge, enabling them to improve their leadership performance in organizational settings.
