The Use of Factor Analysis and Multiple Regression in Evaluating MIS Program Relevancy: A Work-In-Progress Presentation
This presentation will describe a work-in-progress that addresses the knowledge versus skills paradox in MIS outcomes assessments. The database is comprised of alumni assessments of the value of the content of each required course in an MIS program using two frames of reference - in one’s first year on the job and in one’s current position. The intent of the study is to develop course content value factors using a principal components factor analysis, then to relate the resulting factors to an overall index of satisfaction for the entire MIS program. The study will illustrate the application of factor analysis in revealing clusters of courses that relate to knowledge and clusters of courses that relate to skills.
Keywords: curriculum assessment, program relevancy, skills vs knowledge, alumni satisfaction index
