Program self study

Need your input

Today and

Throughout 06-07

Program Self-Study

  • A complete description of how and to what extent the program satisfies the requirements indicated by each of the ABET criteria:

    • Students

    • Program Educational Objectives

    • Program Outcomes and Assessment

    • Professional Component

    • Faculty

    • Facilities

    • Institutional Support and Financial Resources

    • Program Criteria

ABET Accreditation of ISAT


Criterion 3 program outcomes and assessment

Criterion 3: Program Outcomes and Assessment

  • Program Outcomes are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation

  • Each program must:

    • Have an assessment process with documented results. The process must demonstrate that the outcomes important to the mission of the institution and objectives of the program are being measured.

    • Provide evidence that the results of the assessment process are applied to the further development and improvement of the program

ABET Accreditation of ISAT


Criterion 3 program outcomes

* From Guidelines to Institutions, Team Chairs and Program Evaluators on Interpreting and Meeting the Standards Set Forth in Criterion 3 of the Engineering Accreditation Criteria

Criterion 3: Program Outcomes*

  • The assessment process should include direct and indirect measures

    • It should not rely solely on self-report surveys and evidence that the material is “covered” in the curriculum

    • Evidence must be “convincing”

    • Student self-assessment, opinion surveys, and course grades are not, by themselves, acceptable methods for documenting achievement of outcomes

    • Evidence must be directly linked to the specific outcome being assessed

    • Acceptable tools: student portfolios, subject content examinations, subject projects, assignments, faculty evaluation of work/study, internships or co-ops, etc.

ABET Accreditation of ISAT


Criterion 3 you are key providers of evidence of outcome achievement

Criterion 3: You Are Key Providers of Evidence of Outcome Achievement

  • Need your help collecting sample portfolios of graded student work in both F06 and Sp07

  • In each UG course, we need to collect copies of an excellent, an average and a poor example of each completed and graded assignment (per syllabus):

    • Homework

    • Exams

    • Project reports

    • Laboratory reports, etc.

  • Course leads in multi-section courses are responsible for providing one representative set for the entire course.

Thank you for your help

in advance

Criterion 4 professional content

Criterion 4: Professional Content

  • An ABET accreditable curriculum must include:

    • A component combining college-level mathematics and basic sciences appropriate to ISAT

    • Applied Science topics appropriate to ISAT (Criterion 8)

    • A general education component

  • Each component must be treated adequately and per the objectives of the program and institution.

  • Curriculum must culminate in comprehensive projects or capstone experiences based on cumulative knowledge and skills acquired in earlier coursework.

  • Tables 4-1a and b attempt to breakdown the course sequences into these components

ABET Accreditation of ISAT


Criterion 8 program specific criteria

Criterion 8: Program-Specific Criteria

  • Each program must satisfy applicable program criteria and outcomes implied by its title (ISAT):

    • Curricular topics and integration

    • Faculty qualifications

  • Program criteria exist for several applied science programs, such as Quality Management, Industrial Hygiene, Health and Safety and Health Physics

  • Specific ISAT Criteria:

    • Integration of physical, biological, and earth sciences concepts and technology

    • Professional acquisition and use of information

    • Use of the computer as a problem-solving tool

ABET Accreditation of ISAT


Criterion 4 program content items needed for evaluation

Criterion 4: Program Content Items Needed for Evaluation

  • The course material needed for evaluation

    • Textbook and other required material (e.g., manuals, reference booklets, standards documents, and so forth)

    • Syllabus and course policies

    • A complete set of assignments, tests, and important handouts

    • Samples of graded student work on all assignments, written reports and other documents, and tests. Examples of excellent, satisfactory, and poor student work should be included.

    • If some of the above documentation is online (e. g., in an instructor’s web site), please indicate this, and have a computer available at or near the course displays so that the team can view it. Please give here the URL(s) for accessing any such materials

Criterion 5 faculty

Criterion 5: Faculty

  • Sufficient staffing level for the enrollment and expected outcomes of the program

  • Sufficient staffing level for:

    • Adequate student-faculty interaction

    • Student advising and counseling

    • University service activities

    • Industry and government interaction

    • Professional development

  • Appropriate and adequate qualifications

  • Effective role in the program’s guidance, evaluation and improvement

  • Supporting evidence:

    • Faculty CV’s (Thank you for all who submitted a CV)

    • Staffing/enrollment statistics

    • Faculty random interviews during site visit

Need your input Today in (Tables 5-1 and 5-2)

Criterion 5 faculty workload summary table 5 1

Criterion 5: Faculty Workload Summary (Table 5-1)

  • In col. 1 in parenthesis enter % time assigned to ISAT undergraduate (UG) program effort

  • In cols. 3, 4 and 5 enter % of time dedicated to ISAT UG effort.

  • Give us your best guesses and will refine projections later.

Criterion 5 faculty qualifications summary table 5 2

Criterion 5: Faculty Qualifications Summary (Table 5-2)

  • The level of activities listed in the last three columns is an estimate of the average over the last three years, ending with AY 06-07

  • In 3rd col. from the right place the acronyms of only the professional societies in which you are active.

  • Because of our diverse disciplines, please define each acronym on the reverse side of the sheet.

  • Give us your best estimates now and will update the projections later, if necessary.
