A process for developing and assessing programming -- curricular, co-curricular, or extracurricular -- intended to cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset in engineering students is described. Steps of the process are to 1) define learning-outcomes; 2) create a rubric for each learning-outcome; 3) develop activities that generate student work; 4) collect student work; 5) conduct direct assessment of student work by applying the rubrics to student work generated by the activities; 6) interpret and report assessment results; and 7) modify learning-outcomes, rubrics, activities or other program elements in response to assessment results.
