Program Assessment

The initial preparation for ABET EC2000 accreditation can be dated back to the Fall 1999 semester, when a committee was formed by the Dean of the College of Engineering (CoE) at Southern University, and a college-wide assessment coordinator was named to chair the committee.  This committee was charged with the task of developing a comprehensive outcomes assessment program for the CoE. In light of the recommendations made by many accrediting agencies, including ABET, regarding the requirement for an institutional outcomes assessment program, the college presented the preliminary results of its program to the Engineering Council of Visitors (ECoV) in the Spring 2001 semester. The proposed program was reviewed and subsequently approved by the ECoV.  Consequently, each program in the CoE adopted the overall outcomes assessment framework and tailored it to the Program's individual mission.  A sourcebook was developed to introduce the outcomes assessment model for all programs.

 

As we continue to improve the assessment process, the College of Engineering and Computer Science has now adopted to use LiveText as the assessment management tool. In the Spring 2010 semester, an assessment committee was established to plan and enhance the assessment system for the college.
