Panel III

Assessment and Feedback


By Dr. John Merrill

Ohio State University


With increased attention on student and program outcomes, the role of assessment and feedback has become more critical in the development and implementation of high-quality Engineering curricula. Traditional forms of paper-based evaluation are being replaced by online tools that streamline the process of data collection, analysis, and feedback. This increases the potential for more critical discussions about content, instructional methods, and the overall student experience, but also places additional demands on resources to properly manage the assessment and feedback cycle. This panel presentation and discussion will focus on the assessment tools and processes currently in use, some lessons learned, and the impact these have had, not only for freshman programs but for upper division courses as well.
