Abstract

This paper focuses on assessment of student skills in statics and provides details of development of a statics skills assessment tool. The use of only concept inventories to provide proof of student learning is an incomplete assessment as important engineering knowledge consists of both conceptual knowledge and skill intertwined. A multi-step Delphi process involving a group of engineering educators was used to reach consensus on the important skills of statics. These skills are currently grouped into 10 categories. The Delphi rankings included both the average importance of the skill as judged by the Delphi participants and their judgment of the average proportion of their students whom can perform the skill. Skill-based questions are being developed to probe these areas.
