Assessment and Evaluation Tools and Processes
Project Goal:

The Assessment and Evaluation project aims to help engineering faculty learn more about assessment and evaluation so that they may design and implement appropriate processes in their classes and programs.

Project Process:

This project relies on several different types of materials including printed documents, workshops, and web resources to enable faculty to effectively and efficiently implement assessment and evaluation processes. These materials are intended to address many levels of faculty interest. For example, faculty interested in a brief introduction to assessment and evaluation would be well served by the one page summary. Faculty committed to implementing assessment and evaluation in their course or program might seek an on-campus workshop.
