Techniques for Evaluating the Learning Process in Engineering Education.
Korn, Harold A.; Wise, Lauress L.
It is felt that an important source of information in engineering education is ofte n overlooked - the differential impact of the learning process on each student. Currently, the only measure of this sort is the final grade. This research involved (1) developing techniques for assessing various aspects of a student's class performance, and (2) examination of the usefulness of the traditional grade point average. Two different attacks on the problem were used--(1) multivariate correlational study of grading practices, and (2) development of both strategies and devices for observing and evaluating engineering courses.
