Academic Assessment in Drexel Engineering

Assessing enables us to keep the curriculum relevant and maintain continuity in the educational stream when changes are implemented. Assessment provides data for course and curriculum reform, allowing for adjustment of the pre-requisite structure and fundamental skill content.

Closing the loop on assessment helps us to evaluate the effectiveness of implemented changes and new courses. By continually evaluating our courses, we can demonstrate effectiveness of our programs and keep our degrees competitive in the workforce.

Department lists of courses that undergo direct assessment for ABET student outcomes are below.
