Course Learning Objective assessment


Assessments are based on two tools-students work and an in-class survey of extend to which
learning objectives have been achieved on 1 to 5 scale, 1 = Strongly Disagree (SD), 2 =
Disagree (D), 3 = Neutral (N), 4 = Agree (A) and 5 = Strongly Agree (SA)

Objective 1 - Understand about the types and stages of design.

Tools of Assessment
In-Class Survey

Measures
Results
SD, D, N, A, SA
Avg 1 to 5 scale
