Christian Engineering Education Conference
Students take a more active role in helping to assess their education by electronically submitting evaluations, coursework, test scores, and survey results at the entry, intermediate, and capstone levels. These exhibits are carefully selected to demonstrate satisfaction of the program educational objectives, which are derived from departmental and university mission statements, and ABET evaluation criteria. A professional level may also be added to facilitate the gathering of information from alumni, employers, and graduate school advisors. Data is then aggregated, disaggregated, and evaluated to assist in making program improvements. The e-Portfolio effectively serves as an individualized web site for each student. Multiple e-Portfolios may be developed by each student for different purposes. A growth portfolio highlights improvements in student’s knowledge and abilities. A portfolio developed for a prospective employer or graduate school highlights the student’s best work. Faculty may also customize e-Portfolios to meet their individual needs. University-wide implementation issues are discussed including the necessary training for students to use the software effectively, and advisor responsibilities.
