MetadataShow full item record
The undergraduate curriculum committee from the Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas Tech University has made significant modifications that were determined by a systematic student outcomes assessment plan. This paper shows how the department assessment plan facilitated continuous actions of improvement and ultimately provides an example of how a strong undergraduate curriculum plan was constructed. The paper highlights the details of the department assessment plan, such as how ABET student outcomes are mapped to department undergraduate courses, what assessment tools were used, when data were gathered and evaluated, and how the analysis of data was utilized to implement actions of improvement. Finally, the paper provides two examples of significant actions of improvement, made based on the department assessment and evaluation plan.
