The building of faculty's knowledge of outcome-based educational goals and outcomes to achieve an ABET-style continuous improvement system is discussed. Spontaneous discussion of student abilities in pre-requisite and subsequent courses occurred during the follow-up meeting, indicating that faculty are beginning to think in terms of outcomes. It is found that ABET outcomes can be more accurately mapped to courses based on current practice rather than theory. Required assessment points can be identified as they exist and incorporated into ABET data collection without needing to design or implement a separate assessment tool or process.
