Webinar Description

Join ASEE and ABET in a conversation addressing some of the questions and misconceptions that arise regarding continuous improvement in program assessment (which relates to Criterion 4 ABET compliance), including:

  • What are “appropriate, documented” processes?
  • How many data are “enough”?
  • Why can averaging be ineffective?

This webinar, facilitated by Jenny Amos (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), will provide an overview of the assessment process and allow you to evaluate your own program assessment plan against best practices. Please note that this session assumes attendees have some experience with an ABET-oriented continuous improvement process.
