Description

A course assessment questionnaire was designed and used as an assessment tool for evaluation of a design-based and team-oriented mechanical engineering senior design course. The student feedback to the evaluation questionnaire was collected and analyzed to gain a better understanding of how well this course met the learning needs of students and addressed the goal of developing their career skills, as well as its impact on ABET educational objectives, upon which a plan to improve this senior design course would be formulated. The designed assessment questionnaire is a good supplement tool to the regular student evaluation form as a means to gather more insightful and valuable information from students for this specially designed course, through which the additive value of the unique industry-tied and team-oriented education mode implemented in that course can be correctly evaluated.
