ABET Outcomes Assessment Workshop

ABET Outcomes Assessment Workshop

COL Daisie Boettner


COL Jason Lynch,

United States Military Academy

This workshop focuses on developing outcomes assessment strategies that are supportive of meaningful program evaluation and responsive to factors that make each program unique.  Examples of two different assessment strategies will be presented and the fundamental components of an outcomes assessment strategy will be reviewed. Participants will then jointly work on an example problem to explore alternative methods of putting together an assessment architecture.  Lastly, a Q&A session will be held to allow participants to ask specific questions and share from the experiences and ideas of all workshop participants.

Please email LTC Lynn Byers if you plan to attend this workshop.




"Year of Dialogue" Information Session



Information and discussion of what ASEE president David Wormley stated in his president’s    message, ‘During the annual conference in June 2006, the plenary session was devoted to a Socratic Dialogue to define what is an engineering education for global practice in 2020 and beyond and how is it best learned. The plenary has initiated the ASEE “Year of Dialogue,” which is focused at every level within ASEE on how we collectively can advance engineering and engineering technology education based on the wisdom and experience of ASEE’s more than 12,000 members.’
