INCORPORATING EMPLOYER AND STUDENT ASSESSMENTS INTO A GRADUATE ATTRIBUTE ASSESSMENT PLAN

  • Margaret Gwyn University of Victoria

Abstract

When faced with assessing the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) graduate attributes, most programs will start by focusing on
instructor assessments. Course instructors are uniquely positioned to assess their students’ learning, and instructor assessments are sufficient to meet CEAB accreditation requirements. However, for a full picture, data from multiple sources is always desirable. At the University of Victoria, we have chosen to include co-op employer and student assessments in our graduate
attribute assessment plan. In this paper, we present the assessment tools we have identified and created, and outline the system we have developed to sustainably produce assessment reports every term for every program. We highlight some of the challenges we have faced, and conclude by discussing our future plans
