From APPM
Shortcoming
What it means
Deficiency
criterion, policy, or procedure is not satisfied. Therefore, the
program is not in compliance with the criterion, policy, or
procedure
Weakness
a program lacks the strength of compliance with a criterion,
policy, or procedure to ensure that the quality of the program
will not be compromised. Therefore, remedial action is
required to strengthen compliance with the criterion, policy, or
procedure prior to the next review
Concern
a program currently satisfies a criterion, policy, or procedure;
however, the potential exists for the situation to change such
that the criterion, policy, or procedure may not be satisfied
Observation
a comment or suggestion that does not relate directly to the
current accreditation action but is offered to assist the
institution in its continuing efforts to improve its programs

RECENT ABET CHANGES
• Criterion 4 no longer requires that the
extent to which graduates attain Program
Educational Objectives be measured
• Criterion 2 still requires that the Program
Educational Objectives be periodically
reviewed to ensure that they are
consistent with the institutional mission
and constituency needs
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
Criterion 4 Change
• Be careful about the ADDED WORDS to the
criterion
– Regularly
– Appropriate
– Systematically utilized
• You have to document your evaluations &
decisions on assessment results
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
MAIN ISSUES
• A systematically utilized, well documented
(evidence-based) program assessment process
– Every 6 yrs is not a good cycle
– Assessing every course every semester is not
sustainable or recommended
• A good understanding of student strengths &
weaknesses
– General % success of Student Outcome attainment not
enough
– Show the level of attainment & how it changes in time
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
MAIN ISSUES
• Focus on how the assessment process
help improve the program
– Show how assessment help improve program
(close the loops – continuous improvement)
– If possible, for more than one-cycle since
2009 ABET visit
– Link them to improvement/change in Student
Outcome attainment
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
From Fri 9:15, Diana Briedis, Closing the Loop
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
MAIN ISSUES
• Now, much more emphasis on
assessment & attainment of Student
Outcomes
• After all the assessment you are doing:
What are your students’ strengths and
weaknesses related to this SO?
Do the students know what outcomes are
expected of them?
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
MAIN ISSUES
 Although not required, ABET strongly
recommends using PERFORMANCE
INDICATORS (PIs) for assessment of Student
Outcomes
– PIs vs. SOs
– Courses vs. PIs
Instead of our typical
– Courses vs. SOs
– PIs enable a clear definition of what each SO
mean for the program. Otherwise there is no
common view among faculty.
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
MAIN ISSUES
Cont. improvement ≠ Cont. Assessment
 Choose a set of indicators for SOs
 Select courses that provide info for indicators
 Assess courses in a 2- or 3-yr cycle
 You DO NOT have to set the same target of
achievement for all SOs.
 Technical SOs can be more important
 If you have numerous info sources for one SO, but
much less for another, then a lower target can be
set for the latter

Ankara kampüsündeki programın ABET
tarafından akredite olduğu ve diğerinin olmadığı
konusunda web sayfası ve basılı/elektronik

WHAT ELSE IS IMPORTANT
APPM
• ODTÜ – Ankara kampus kataloğunda PEO, SO
bilgileri basılı/elektronik katalog ve web sayfası

• Team coming in 2015 may cite a shortcoming
for which the team in 2009 did not state as a
shortcoming, even though that process did
not change for the institution between 2009 to
2015.
• This is completely acceptable by ABET
• ABET says this is why an evaluator only
evaluates a program once!

The change to Criterion 2 removes the requirement for a program to have a
process for the "review and revision" of its program educational
objectives (PEOs). The new language requires a documented process that is
systematically utilized and effective, involving the program's constituents, for
periodic review of the PEOs so that they remain consistent with the institution's
mission, the constituents' needs, and the criteria.

Criterion 4 – Closing the loop
• Most important part of the Self-Study

• You HAVE TO show that some
improvements (especially major program
improvements) are tied to the assessment
data & evaluation of that data!
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ

Criterion 4 from Program Criteria
• Criterion 4. Continuous Improvement
• The program must regularly use appropriate,
documented processes for assessing and evaluating the
extent to which the student outcomes are being attained.
The results of these evaluations must be
systematically utilized as input for the continuous
improvement of the program. Other available
information may also be used to assist in the continuous
improvement of the program.

Criterion 4 from SSQ
• Continuous Improvement
• Describe how the results of evaluation processes for the
student outcomes and any other available information
have been systematically used as input in the
continuous improvement of the program. Describe
the results of any changes (whether or not effective) in
those cases where re-assessment of the results has
been completed. Indicate any significant future program
improvement plans based upon recent evaluations.
Provide a brief rationale for each of these planned
changes.

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
3. THEN, they recommend using rubrics for
grading PIs so that across different
courses, even grading can be achieved
(inter-rater reliability)
4. SO assessment is best done in 3-yr
cycles
1. Collect
2. Evaluate
3. Implement

ASSESSMENT PROCESS - Example
• Course assessment in the context of a sustainable
improvement process (Zia Yamayee) suggested:
– Phase I: from last final statement to year of self study (4
years)
– Phase II: year of self study (1 academic year)
– Phase III: on site review (1 year)
• In phase I:
–
–
–
–
Periodic review of PEOs (every 3 years)
Assessment & evaluation of SOs (every other year)
Identify & implement improvements (annual)
Document (annual)

5. Overall course grades for assessment is
NOT a good idea
– homeworks, mid-term grades, etc. are OK

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
6. Do not try to collect data from ALL courses for
SO assessment. Choose your courses as to
how much each contribute to a PI or SO.
–
–
–
In Advanced Assessment workshop, they showed a
mapping for courses vs. SOs & they normalized on
courses instead of SOs
A course is not recommended to be used directly for
the assessment of the level of achievement of a SO.
(Use PIs which cover a number of courses)
Do not use Pass/Fail type of scales in assessing
attainment of SOs or PIs in a course work

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
7. During SO assessment you can have time depth
–
–
–
focusing on measurement of juniors and seniors more
than freshmen and sophomores. (see ppt by Elias
Nassar: Building and assessment and CI system)
Show the level of attainment throughout the curriculum
Select benchmark courses for assessment of SOs. Do
not overdo by selecting every related course every
semester
Note: Initial assessment of SO for communication skill may not be made on ENG
101 courses, but instead Introduction to *** Engineering courses can be used for
this purpose!

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
8. Continuous improvement does not mean
continuous assessment!
– A three year assessment cycle is acceptable &
recommended because
•
•
it is more sustainable
Makes it much easier to involve faculty
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
9. You can give different level of attainment
targets for different SOs. They do not have to
be equal!
–
–
–
–
Technical SOs can understandibly be more
important for the program
For ex. a, b can have 90% as a target
But for ex. k can have 60% as a target
This is because technical ones can be more
important for you, or you may have more chances in
your program to evaluate/assess them.
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
10.Program evaluator will ask ‘So, what are the
strengths & weaknesses of your students
related to this student outcome?’
– You should have an answer for that and
using performance indicators (but not
necessarily courses) allows for that
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
ASSESSMENT PROCESS
11.Avoid a «stealth» assessment process.
Students should know they are being
assessed & they should be
knowledgeable about SOs & the level of
performance expected of them.
 Students are «drinking from a fire-hose»
therefore they learn better if they know what’s
expected of them – the learning objectives
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
13. Make sure you have evidence of
assessment & evaluation
Make sure they are present in the folders
kept in the display area
Try to show the course materials for the most
recent offering. You do not need to archive all
the past material (Joe Turner, Thu 9:15)
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET

ASSESSMENT PROCESS
14. It is advisable to have an even number of
scale for SO assessment :
• Bloom’s taxonomy
• EMAU
• Four column template
For example:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Exceeds standard (Excellent/exemplary)
Meets standard (Good/Satisfactory)
Progressing to standard (Fair/Developing)
Below standard (Poor/Unsatisfactory)

FACULTY
• All faculty needs to be involved at some
stage
• Evaluator will interview faculty and get a
feel of the assessment culture of the
program
– Typically Monday afternoon of the site visit

PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
• Course & assessment material display area is
VERY IMPORTANT
• The evaluator will study these on the Sunday
afternoon (13:30-onwards)
• It may be a good idea to arrange the display
materials according to Student Outcomes
(e.g.one folder per SO)
• Make it easy for the evaluator to find information
(both in report & display area)
• Have evidence from the last cycle at a minimum
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
Organize materials to allow an “audit” process
• Course materials should demonstrate any data
collected from student performance in the
courses
• Evaluator should be able to trace:
1. From data collection to evaluation
2. To use of evaluation results in determining whether
there is potential need for improvement
3. To any improvement action that was implemented
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET

PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
For currently accredited programs:
– Assessment data summaries
– Evaluations
– Use in identifying any potential improvements
since last ABET review should be in display area
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
• Although assessment is done for
departmental courses, if during the visit the
evaluator asks, then evidence should be
made available from other departments
– Physics, Math, English, etc.
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ

PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
• Team coming in 2015 may cite a
shortcoming for which the team in 2009
did not state as a shortcoming, even
though that process did not change for the
institution between 2009 to 2015.
• This is completely acceptable by ABET
• That is why an evaluator only evaluates a
program once!
MÜHENDİSLİK FAKÜLTESİ
ABET
12 Mayıs 2014
PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
• Must read:
– The previous Self Study Report prepared by
your Department in 2009
– The previous ABET Evaluation Report
prepared by the team after the Site Visit

PREPARATION FOR SITE VISIT
• Early communication of the evaluator and
Team Chair with the Dean or Dept Chair
can allow the program to actually revise
some things
• A shortcoming may even be eliminated by
conducting such a process
(But this depends on the preference of the
Team Chair)
