An Approach to Assessing Learning Outcomes over Consecutive Courses

  • This Research to Practice Work in Progress Paper describes an outcome-based evaluation performed over three consecutive courses taught to electrical engineering students. The courses are delivered in the study entry phase: Computer Science 1 and 2 in the first and second semester and Digital Design in the third semester. The outcome-based evaluation was introduced to evaluate the progress made by students during the courses. Covering three semesters taught by two different lecturers, it gives a long-term view of the learning process in the study entry phase. The “outcome-based evaluation” methodology is proposed in literature and was introduced at our university at the end of 2016. Particular attention needs to be paid to formulating the questionnaire. The lecturers therefore cooperate with an evaluation officer from the university.
