“QEP” stands for Quality Enhancement Plan.
The QEP is a crucial component of the University’s regular reaffirmation (review)
process through SACSCOC (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on
Colleges), a regional group. We voluntarily belong to SACSCOC in order to make sure
we meet and maintain high standards for your education. Every ten years King University
goes through our reaffirmation year during which we are reviewed on a number of measures.
The King University QEP focuses on learning outcomes and the environment that supports
student learning. Based on years of institutional data and feedback from faculty and
from students like you, it was decided that our QEP would be Improving Student Writing. King is now making a concerted effort to improve our students’ writing abilities
in all programs and all formats.
We plan to incorporate better-written assignments into the curriculum as well as provide
more writing assistance inside and outside the classroom. You will receive help from
your professors, but also from librarians, folks in the ACE, and student success specialists.
There will be resources on Blackboard and Portal. Three Student Learning Outcomes
(Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) have been defined:
The QEP process includes an assessment when you start your education at King, support
for improving your writing skills while you are at King, and an assessment at the
end of your degree program at King. You will receive help with the three SLOs from
professors, librarians, the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), and student success
After completing the initial assessment, students will take the classes in their degree
program. Specific courses are designated as Q classes. In these classes, the term
projects will be graded twice, once for the class grade and once as a QEP assessment
of writing skills. The final assessment is the Outcomes Assessment at King (OAK) assessment.
The QEP has a ten-year plan to involve all King University students in the QEP process.
The first five years the Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS)/On-line students
will participate in initial assessments, writing papers in classes, and follow up
assessments. After the first five years, all students at King University will participate
in this program to improve student writing. The programs included for initial QEP
roll-out are the BBA, Health Care Administration and Psychology.
