levels of review in ep
Levels of Review in EP
  • Supports a multi-tier evaluation system from our national award competition with sponsors from industry to user-based reviews of individual learning resources.
    • Ingestion level (minimum level)
    • User ratings & comments
    • Peer review
    • Premier award
the premier award for excellence in engineering education courseware
The Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware
  • A national competition to identify and reward the authors of high-quality, non-commercial courseware designed to enhance engineering education
    • The Premier Award is about the entire experience of using the courseware by learners, not just the courseware itself
  • A dissemination system to distribute the Premier Courseware (via CD’s, ASEE Prism ads, presentations at FIE with IEEE & ASEE)
the premier award for excellence in engineering education courseware1
The Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware
  • A national competition to identify and reward the authors of high-quality, non-commercial courseware in engineering education
  • The criteria focuses on the experience of the learners.
    • Instructional Design
      • Does it enhance learning? Does it promote learning objectives? Degree of interactivity? Degree of cognitive/ conceptual change? Is multimedia used creatively and effectively for learning goals? Is the courseware adaptable and can be used in a variety of settings.
    • Software Design
      • Is it well designed and usable?
    • Engineering Content
      • Is the content appropriate, accurate and well presented?

2006 Premier Award Winners
  • Web-CAT by Stephen H. Edwards of Virginia Tech, is a flexible, tailorable automated grading system designed to process computer programming assignments. Web-CAT runs as a web application on a server and provides all of its capabilities via a web interface-all submission activity, feedback, viewing of results, and grading activities take place via your web browser. Its plug-in architecture makes Web-CAT highly customizable and extensible, allowing it to support virtually any model of program grading, assessment, and feedback generation.
