Abstract

This chapter describes two online systems that support the transition from instructor-based to student-outcome-based education in an engineering technology context. The first system facilitates communication among faculty while establishing a baseline of current curricular practice. This data can be used to identify appropriate measurement points for various student performance outcomes. The second system is designed to collect and display student performance data related to particular educational outcomes in preparation for program accreditation. Data are collected from both students and faculty. The system is scalable, so it can be adapted to various levels of need. This data are being used to assess individual or group performance across several distributed campuses.
