 software engineering, from vision to analysis, design, validation and deployment.




I. Data Collection:

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
Each course has a course journal to state its assessment process and record its assessment results.
Each course has established its Course Learning Objectives. Course Learning Objectives of seven
courses have contributed to this Student Learning Objective. The Course Learning Objectives of these
courses are assessed with following assessment methods:

CMPE 200 – midterm and final exams
CMPE 202 – exams and tests, homework, projects, laboratory assignments, presentations, reports.
CMPE 203 – exams, team presentations, in class exercises and individual research papers.
CMPE 220 – exams, homework, team projects, special topic report
CMPE 272 – exam, class projects
CMPE 294 – homework, oral presentations, in-class and outside class writing assignments, individual
           research paper
CMPE 295A/B – project abstracts and plan assignment, final project reports, project supervisor feedback

II. What have you learn about this Student Learning Outcome?

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
Each student is required to take 5 core courses to learn the advanced knowledge of the practice of
computer or software engineering. Each student is also required to engage in a two-semester project to
put the advanced knowledge in practice.

According to the assessment results of the Course Learning Objectives, this Student Learning Objective
is considered “Achieved”. However, there is room for improvement.

II. What have you learn about this Student Learning Outcome?

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
Each student is required to take 5 core and 3 elective courses to learn contemporary engineering
principles, methodologies and tools. Each student is also required to engage in a two-semester project to
apply these principles, methodologies and tools to tackle complex engineering problems and tasks

According to the assessment results of the Course Learning Objectives, this Student Learning Objective
is considered “Achieved”. However, there is room for improvement.

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
All courses have a teamwork component. CMPE 203, 220, and 294 cover topics related to leadership.
According to the assessment results of the Course Learning Objectives, this Student Learning Objective
is considered “Achieved”. However, due to the team members are limited to computer and software
engineering students, a true multi-disciplinary environment is not practical within current curriculum
                                                                        Program Assessment Report

arrangement.

I. Data Collection:

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
CMPE 203 – midterm exam
CMPE 220 – special topic reports
CMPE 294 – Case studies are examined in the lab assignments.

II. What have you learn about this Student Learning Outcome?

[Fall 2007 – Fall 2008]
This outcome is covered in lectures on ethics, documentation and plagiarism, intellectual property and
product life-cycle. Case studies are examined in the lab assignments. Most students grasp these
concepts well with the exception of one or two plagiarizers per semester. Although this Student Learning
Outcome is considered “Achieved”, there are still some rooms for improvement.
