
Evaluation process is (supposedly) a friendly
process, not adversarial
Evaluation based on a Self-Study and visit
Evaluators are Engineering + CS faculty and
industry professionals
Accreditation is based on
outcomes assessment

not bean counting
Faculty and students are expected to be aware
of the ABET process.

Objectives and Outcomes
Objectives: what we are preparing the
students for.
 Outcomes: what the students are
expected to know/ be able to do.

An example
Objective: Graduates will be able to
communicate with people throughout the
world.
 Outcome: Students must be able to speak
12 languages before graduation.
 Assessment: Students can speak only 10
languages. A new process is being put in
place to increase the number of spoken
languages by students.

Program Educational Objectives – Program
educational objectives are broad statements that
describe the career and professional
accomplishments that the program is preparing
graduates to achieve.
Program Outcomes – Program outcomes are
narrower statements that describe what students
are expected to know and be able to do by the
time of graduation. These relate to the skills,
knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire
in their matriculation through the program.

From ABET CAC 2008-09
I-1. The program must have documented, measurable objectives.
I-2. The program’s objectives must include expected outcomes for graduating
students.
I-3. Data relative to the objectives must be routinely collected and documented,
and used in program assessments.
I-4. The extent to which each program objective is being met must be
periodically assessed.
I-5. The results of the program’s periodic assessments must be used to help
identify opportunities for program improvement.
I-6. The results of the program’s assessments and the actions taken based on
the results must be documented.

CS 400 Revisions



Current CS400 is a sophomore level course.
Separate the CS600 concerns.
Many of the 4xx courses do NOT depend on
advanced data structures/algorithms.


Collectively CEG 233 and CS 242 can become the
focal point of prerequisites for 3xx and 4xx-level
courses.
Introduce a standard “Algorithms” course at the
senior level.
