This study seeks to develop a resource to assess student competencies in communication, teamwork, investigation, design and problem analysis. This resource will be designed in a way that will make it applicable in a wide range of courses and institutions. The assessment tool will be piloted in nine engineering programs and student focus groups will be conducted to assess whether the students understand the feedback provided by the rubrics in the way intended by the instructor.
This study is part of HEQCO’s Learning Outcomes Assessment Consortium composed of postsecondary institutions in the province. Their goal is to pilot assessment tools and techniques that are scalable at the institutional level.
Throughout the course of this project, updates and final reports will be posted here.
