          Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report
                                         April 2010


Overview
The Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department assesses learning outcomes
using an annual cycle of assessment and review. This process is consistent with HLC and ABET
requirements. Below are presented the mission of each degree program, the campus-wide
outcomes, and an explanation of how those outcomes map to program outcomes. The outcome
assessment tools and results of the most recent assessment are then shown. As a result of the
most recent assessment cycle, all three programs have taken action to address unexpected results,
and those actions are also described below.

1. Department/Program Mission
   a. Architectural Engineering Program - The Architectural Engineering Program will
      provide students with the tools necessary to solve architectural engineering problems
      critical to our society’s well-being. This will be accomplished through a comprehensive,
      forward-looking and broad-based architectural engineering curriculum emphasizing
      fundamentals, practical applications, oral and written communication skills, computer
      applications skills, and professional practice issues and ethics. The Program will prepare
      graduates for entry into the architectural engineering profession, for life-long learning,
      and to function as architectural engineers in a global society.
   b. Civil Engineering Program - The Civil Engineering Program will prepare students for
      professional performance in the global society and for life-long learning and continued
      professional development in the civil engineering profession through a comprehensive,
      forward-looking and broad-based curriculum in civil engineering emphasizing
      fundamentals and practical applications, oral and written communication skills, computer
      applications skills, and professional practice issues and ethics.
   c. Environmental Engineering Program - The Environmental Engineering Program will
      prepare students for a career in the global, interdisciplinary field of environmental
      engineering and for life-long development in the profession. The program's fundamental
      base in biological and earth sciences and development of specific engineering application
      skills prepares graduates to approach unique, atypical problems with a true problem-
      solving approach, develop solutions to benefit society and the environment, and promote
      these solutions.

2. Campus-Wide Student Learning Outcomes (SLO)
    Programs must demonstrate that their graduates have:
    I.   an ability to communicate effectively both orally and in writing.
   II.   an ability to think critically and analyze effectively.
  III.   an ability to apply disciplinary knowledge and skills in solving critical problems.
 IV.     an ability to function in diverse learning and working environments.
   V. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
 VI.     an awareness of national and global contemporary issues.
 VII.    a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning.


3. Curriculum Mapping to Campus and/or Program Outcomes
The manner in which the three program curricula and their required courses meet the campus
learning outcomes can be inferred, in part, from the information in the tables below. In these
tables, the relationships between the seven campus learning outcomes and the various program
outcomes are shown. The relationships between the various program outcomes and actual
required program courses can be found in the appropriate program ABET Self-Study reports.

4. Methods/Instruments and Administration


                                                3
The following tables contain descriptions of the methods used in the assessment of the
campus/program outcomes, information on their implementation, the results of the assessment
exercise, and recommendations for either program improvement or assessment modification.
With the exception of the subject field exam, the assessment tools are administered by individual
faculty members, and the results are reviewed by / recommendations are made by appropriate
department program committees. An ‘NA’ indicates No Action taken because the performance
metric was met; highlighted entries reflect a performance metric not being met. Where the
performance metric was not met, an Evaluation Action is indicated based on the keys provided.

       Fall 2009 Program Outcomes Assessment Methods, Administration, Results, and
                   Recommendations – Architectural Engineering Program

The table below shows the campus-wide learning outcome, associated program outcome(s), and
results of assessment for each outcome. In some cases, the assessment showed a failure to meet
the metric. Such failure resulted in an action being taken. These actions were of the following
five types:

Evaluation Actions:
   1. Wait for another semester and assess with the added data
   2. Revise metric to be more realistic
   3. Change the assessment tool
   4. Dialogue with the Area / Group of instruction (structures, geotech, materials, etc.)
   5. Re-evaluate the data as it appears to questionable

The table below shows the campus-wide learning outcome, associated program outcome(s), and
results of assessment for each outcome. In some cases, the assessment showed a failure to meet
the metric. Such failure resulted in an action being taken. These actions were of the following
five types:

Evaluation Actions:
   1. Wait for another semester and assess with the added data
   2. Revise metric to be more realistic
   3. Change the assessment tool
   4. Dialogue with the Area / Group of instruction (structures, geotech, materials, etc.)
   5. Re-evaluate the data as it appears to questionable

       Fall 2009 Program Outcomes Assessment Methods, Administration, Results, and
                  Recommendations – Environmental Engineering Program

The table below shows the campus-wide learning outcome, associated program outcome(s), and
results of assessment for each outcome. In some cases, the assessment showed a failure to meet
the metric. Such failure resulted in an action being taken. These actions were of the following six
types:

Evaluation Actions:
   1. Wait for another semester and assess with the added data
   2. Revise metric to be more realistic
   3. Change the assessment tool
   4. Dialogue with the Area / Group of instruction (environmental, water resources, etc.)
   5. Re-evaluate the data as it appears to questionable
   6. Curricular change
