Academics

Welcome to the General Education Resources!

General Education is the foundation for all degree and certificate programs at Navajo Technical University. It provides students with knowledge, skills, attributes, and values needed to learn actively, communicate clearly, think critically, creatively, and reflectively, and to interact effectively in diverse environments. NTU's General Education is to educate students within the Diné Philosophy of Education to be independent, critical thinkers, competent in their chosen professions by possessing a solid foundation in math, English, laboratory, social and behavioral sciences, communication, and information technology.

Come back to this site frequently. It will be updated with new information throughout summer 2019.

And, here is a link to NTU's Assessment Resources.

 

General Education Program Assessment Plan 2019-20

Starting in 2019-20, the assessment of NTU's General Education Program will focus on the improvement of the program as a whole. Student learning data will be gathered from project assignments in each GenEd course. Data summaries from all sections of the course will be compiled on a semester-by-semester basis by the University's Offices of Assessment and Institutional Research. Departmental faculty will review the data and design course and GenEd program improvements during Assessment Days each semester. An annual summary that includes analyses of program improvement will be prepared by the Assessment Committee and included in the University's Annual Student Learning Report. Curriculum revisions as needed will be designed by the General Education Committee and reviewed and approved by the Faculty Congress.

Academic Program Review

 

Purpose
The purpose of Program Review at Navajo Technical University is to promote systematic review and evaluation of academic programs. Program Review is central to NTU's mission, planning, academic programming, and continuous improvement. It focuses on:

  • Curriculum
  • Student data
  • Program assessment and improvements
  • Strengths and challenges
  • Recognition
  • Cost

Each academic degree program is reviewed cyclically. The schedule is developed in consultation with Department Chairs and Deans. Under exceptional circumstances and with the approval of the Deans, a review may be extended or postponed. When possible, the schedule is coordinated with other review(s) and accreditation obligations.

 

Process
The Program Review process includes five steps: 1) Planning, 2) Self-Study, 3) Hearing, 4) Analysis of findings, and 5) Recommendations to the President's Cabinet.

Committee on Institution Research (IRB)

Welcome to the Navajo Technical University research site for researchers. If you are a student about to embark on a research initiative, please read all of the following information so you can be well informed about your project.

  1. Have your faculty advisor review and approve your project
  2. Determine the type of review required: exempt, expedited or full review
  3. Download an Application for Research for your project.
  4. Complete the application and submit to a member of the CIR
  5. Use the application checklist below to insure your documents are complete before submission.

 

Application for Research
All applications should be in type-written form, written in non-technical terms, and response placed directly under each question. It is the investigator's responsibility to provide information about research procedures so that the CIR has a clear understanding of what the research entails. It is important that you answer every question to ensure that all of the necessary information is included in your application.

Data collection may not begin until researchers have received approval to conduct the research, and research related activity shall not continue beyond the date stated on the approval letter. Research projects involving human subjects can be approved for up to one year in accordance with Federal Regulations. A study is considered complete when data collection and data analysis are complete.

 

Application Checklist
The following is provided to assist you with your application. Be sure your completed application includes these documents:

  1. A title page with contact information for all investigators and sponsors.
  2. A completed application form that includes:
    • - A description of any potential financial or professional interest by a funding source in the outcome of the research.
    • - A description of the setting or location(s) of where the research will be conducted.
    • - An estimate of how the amount of time that will be requested of each participant.
    • - A description of any potential benefits to participants for participating in this research (including incentives of any type).

  8. CV or bio sketch for Principal Investigator
  9. Submit two complete application packet to the Chair or Co-Chair of the CIR

 

Faculty Responsibility for Student Projects
All research involving human subjects conducted by students are to be supervised by a faculty member and be reviewed and approved by the Committee on Institution Research prior to initiation. Investigators may not solicit subject participation or begin data collection until they have received written approval from the CIR.

The faculty advisor has the responsibility for (1) making the decision whether student research activities involving human participants meet eligibility for CIR review; (2) overseeing all research related activities; and (3) assuring that ethical principles are adhered to in the conduct of the project.

An example: consider a student who undertakes an individual or class project that does not involve a vulnerable population and involves no risk to the subjects of the study. The student delivers a presentation on campus (e.g., poster or showcase session or an oral presentation before faculty and peers.) This project would not require CIR review. However, if the results of this otherwise "no or low-risk" project may/might be disseminated at a professional conference, submitted for publication, or published on the World Wide Web, government regulations require prior review by CIR.

Generally, student research involving human subjects falls into one of two categories, only one of which requires CIR Review:

 

Regulations:
Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations Part 46 (45 CFR 46) Protection of Human Subjects specifies federal regulations for the conduct of research involving human subjects. All human subjects research at Navajo Technical University must be conducted in accordance with 45CFR46. Regulations are available at http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubjects/guidance/45cfr46.html

(Ref: 21 CFR Part 312, 812, 45 CFR 46.101(b)(4), (b)(3), 45 CFR 46.402(a), 63 FR 60364-60367, November 9, 1998.)

 

 

 

NTU is partnering with SUN PATH and WICHE ICE. This opportunity provides quality online course sharing that ensures our students access a variety of online courses to help them stay on track to graduate. The partnership offers NTU access to the many Higher Learning online courses within the State of New Mexico and the region. Vice-versa, other Universities and Colleges would be able to enroll in our online courses. This helps with articulation and course sharing, which will help in cost savings, and ensuring our students graduate on time. All SUN ONLINE courses are Quality Matters (QM) certified which means NTU plans to offer QM certified courses as well. This is a huge advantage and opportunity for NTU.

 

sunPath

SUN PATH is a consortium of New Mexico public colleges sharing quality online courses to ensure that students have access to a variety of courses, certificates, and degree programs. We are dedicated to excellence in online learning and professional development for faculty who teach online and committed to increasing access to quality online education for students across New Mexico.

 

wicheIce

WICHE ICE enables students, through their home institutions, to seamlessly access high quality online courses and programs offered by other four-year and two-year ICE member institutions. The collaborative model fosters faculty engagement, resource sharing, and innovation.

 

NEW MEXICO SUN ONLINE powered by WICHE ICE: Online Course Sharing System
SUN Online is a coursesharing statewide system that provides New Mexico students, from participating colleges and universities, to have greater access to quality online courses and programs across the state.

Through this system students have the opportunity to take classes from other institutions in the state that articulate their programs of study, while remaining enrolled in their home institution.

Colleges benefit with less duplication of courses, resources and programs and employers benefit with increased responsiveness and reduced time-to-market for local and regional training needs.

An online course catalogue with all courses shared by participating institutions can be accessed at http://www.wiche-ice.org.

Navajo Technical University's (NTU) Adult Education Program offers classes and tutoring to help adult learners to build basic academic skills to prepare to take GED test to attain a high school equivalency diploma. The Program also provides students evidence of readiness to enter job training programs or college. The NTU ABE/GED Program mission statement is "Adult Basic Education is committed to adult learners to enter higher levels of self-reliance and employment opportunities. With the knowledge obtained, adult students will exercise choices and options with effective and productive lifestyles based on Diné cultural principles: Nitsáhákees, Nahat'á, Iiná, and Sihasin."

The NTU ABE/GED Program complies with the State of New Mexico GED requirements including:

  • Must be 16 or 17 years of age if you meet the following expectations:
  • Obtain and submit a permission form with consent from local school District as well as from parents or guardian. One does not need to live in New Mexico to take the GED test with the Program.
  • Must complete the pre-post tests and practice test after spending a certain amount of prescribed time required by the Program
  • The Program does not require that a student takes a GED Practice Test prior to taking an Official GED Test, however, it is recommended that a Practice Test be taken to ensure preparedness and readiness to take the Official Test.

The New GED 2014 Testing started in January 2014, and administered on computers call Computer Based Testing (CBT). The new generation of testing will be harder to pass and will include four components and will require all candidates to improve or develop their basic computer literacy skills. Four (4) subjects in the New GED Test are:

  • Reading, Language, Arts (RLA) — (150 minutes)
    Writing and Reading are combined as RLA.
  • Mathematical Reasoning — (120 minutes)
  • Science — (90 minutes)
  • Social Studies — (95 minutes)

Students must register to schedule to test which will require mandatory GED Orientation scheduled by the Program Instructors. Students will schedule testing when referred by the Instructor.

All prior ABE/GED Program testing scores and records were erased during November 2013, and cannot be used as credit toward your diploma.
