Major Field Test Results

The Biology Department at Andrews University uses the Major Field Tests from Educational Testing Services, Princeton NJ as one of several measures to evaluate the quality of our graduating seniors. This gives us a comparison of AU Biology graduates with graduating biology majors nationwide. Data for all years in which the MFT was administered are recorded below. We praise God for the many ways that he has blessed our students. Note that averages are calculated as a per student average rather than as a per test event average.
