Update March 19, 2020: This conference has been postponed until October 2020.

ABET will hold a Fundamentals of Program Assessment Workshop at The American Society for Engineering Education Northeast Section (ASEE-NE) 2020 Annual Conference at the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The conference theme of “The Path to Impactful Innovation in 21st Century Engineering Education” will focus on trends and changing landscape of engineering education.

Working in small groups, you learn to design assessment processes, develop measurable student outcomes and apply data collection and data reporting methods.

Our facilitators are highly experienced faculty with wide-ranging experience in assessment and evaluation. This workshop focuses primarily on ABET Criterion 2: Program Educational Objectives, Criterion 3: Student Outcomes, and Criterion 4: Continuous Improvement.

At the workshop, you will receive a booklet containing all slides and reference materials so you can review what you’ve learned and apply it to your program back at home.
