Improving Teaching and Learning in Engineering Education through a Continuous Assessment Process
Christoforou, A. P.; Yigit, A. S.
European Journal of Engineering Education, v33 n1 p105-116 Mar 2008
This paper presents the effects of a continuous assessment process on mechanical engineering education at Kuwait University. This process has been in place for the last five academic years and is producing results. Efforts to educate faculty and students about the process are beginning to produce accurate and consistent measurements of student learning. Although another assessment cycle is needed to make a better judgement, there is evidence that assessment is effective in improving teaching and learning in the programme. There is also an increased constituent awareness of the utility of assessment, which helps in instilling an institutional culture and therefore assuring a sustainable process. (Contains 1 table and 7 figures.)
