Abstract

ABET's requirement for accredited programs to implement outcomes-based assessment models has stimulated the growth of formalized assessment programs within the engineering and engineering technology communities. This paper will outline the model that DeVry Institute of Technology is using to implement a complete assessment plan for its Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) program. The program assessment plan contains the specifics of a structured process which validates that students are achieving the goals and objectives of the program via direct and indirect measurements. Information gathered from faculty, students, alumni and employers is used to measure the knowledge levels achieved and to determine skills and competencies. The number of measured objectives will increase and ultimately meet the TAC of ABET criteria. Student performance and retention data are closely monitored for improvements during the implementation of the assessment program. The goal is to employ a continuous assessment process that provides meaningful input to future program development and allows our institution to strengthen its educational effectivenes
