Examination of Assessment Practices for Engineering Design Projects in Secondary Technology Education (First Article in 3-Part Series)
Kelley, Todd R.; Wicklein, Robert C.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v46 n1 p6-31 2009
This article presents a descriptive study designed to determine the national status of secondary technology education curriculum content and assessment practices as they relate to engineering design. The results of this study were divided into a three-part article series. Although this study focused on the larger construct of the national status of the infusion of engineering design into technology education, three separate sub-constructs emerged. The three sub-constructs were: a) status of engineering design curriculum content; b) the status of assessment practices of engineering design projects; and c) what selected challenges are identified by secondary technology educators in teaching engineering design. (Contains 1 figure and 7 tables.) [For Part 2, see EJ868621.]
