Why Should Program Assessment Matter to Practitioners?
Abstract:In September, the School of Engineering where I teach hosted a team of engineering educators sent by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), which visits engineering programs at regular intervals to determine whether they should receive or retain accreditation. Accreditation of an engineering program in the U.S. guarantees that the program meets minimum standards of quality established by the profession (ABET was founded 75 years ago by engineering professional societies, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the American Society for Engineering Education).
