Major Field Achievement Test - 21 years and counting
Junior and Senior CS majors in 2008 continued the spring tradition of taking the Major Field Achievement Test in Computer Science. During the 21 year period we have participated in this testing process, UHH students have performed at or above national norms on the test overall and on each of the subareas in every year except one. This year's students put UHH in the 60th percentile of the 129 institutional scores making up the national norm. Good job!
