Camelia, Fanny; Ferris, Timothy L. J.; Behrend, Monica B. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: An evaluation of the effectiveness of systems engineering (SE) courses in developing students' systems thinking (ST) capacity in both the cognitive and affective domains. A combined cognitive ST performance and affective engagement with ST assessment is proposed as an approach to assess students' ST in both domains. The results can…

Friess, Wilhelm A.; Goupee, Andrew J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Scholarship of Application. Background: Capstone courses constitute the culminating experience in engineering curricula. A core characteristic is the student team and project-based nature, with many team deliverables. The ensuing difficulty is to fairly assess the individual team member's contribution toward the team effort. Contribution: The…

Hulls, Carol C. W.; Rennick, Christopher – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Contribution: A first-year programming course was redesigned with a large, open-ended robotics project. The course design aligns with best practices for promoting development of students' self-efficacy in solving ill-structured software design problems. Background: From Jonassen's theory, problem-solving outcomes are dependent on the problem…

Chen, Huai-Yi; Wu, Chien-Ming; Lai, Chiung-Hui – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies indicate that students experimenting with characterization of optical planar waveguides use expensive ready-made prism couplers without clear understanding about construction of the entire optical measurement system. This paper presents a cost-effective modified bright-mode prism coupler that helps students learn…
