The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) is a federation of 31 professional engineering and technical societies. Since 1932, ABET has provided quality assurance of education through accreditation. ABET accredits more than 2400 engineering, engineering technology, computing and applied science programs at over 500 colleges and universities internationally. ABET is recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation in USA.
  • 3. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS • During the visit, the evaluators and observers for the BSIT and BSCS programs will meet with faculty members and students, will tour computing laboratories, will visit classes, and will review course materials and assessment data that the faculty will be preparing for the visitors to show how the college helps students acquire specific outcomes to achieve the respective program’s objectives, and how the college assesses the achievement of the respective students’ outcomes and objectives.
  • 4. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS Importance of Accreditation • In the United States, accreditation is used to assure QUALITY in educational institutions and PROGRAMS.
  • 5. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS Definition of Terms Student Outcomes (SOs) - Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the programme. Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) – Programme educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Programme educational objectives are based on the needs of the programme’s constituencies. Assessment –is defined as one or more processes that identify, collect, and prepare the data necessary for evaluation.
  • 6. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS Definition of Terms Evaluation – is defined as one or more processes for interpreting the data acquired though the assessment processes in order to determine how well the programme educational objectives and student outcomes are being attained. On-Term Courses – refer to the regular course offerings for a particular trimester as indicated in the curriculum plan. Faculty Committee on Evaluation (FCE) of SOs – a committee composed of faculty members, established in each College to ensure assessment and evaluation of student outcomes are performed as scheduled and results are provided to respective offices on a timely basis.

  • 16. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS Student Outcomes and Assessment • Describe what the students are expected to know and be able to do by the of graduation. • Relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that the students acquire as they progress through the program. • Each program must show how they are meeting the student outcomes – The BSCS (a-k) – BSIT (a-n) • The method(s) used to assess these outcomes must be explained and must show documented results
  • 17. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS PROCEDURE Assessment • Direct assessment of SOs by the Faculty – Assessment by Faculty from the selected courses is submitted at the end of each Trimester using the assessment and evaluation templates. Each Faculty Member submits a report to the FCE of SOs explaining the process for obtaining the scores.
  • 18. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS • Senior Exit Survey – The Guidance Office administers a Senior Exit Survey (see attached) to the graduating students during their last trimester in the programme. The results of the survey are submitted to the FCE of SOs for appropriate action.
  • 19. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS • Assessment of the SOs for terminal project/research project course(s) – Assessment of student outcomes for terminal / research project course(s) may be done in two forms: 1) by the Review Panel who sits as evaluators during the presentation and defense of the project and 2) by the students enrolled in the course. The Professor handling the terminal / research project course submits a competency report to the FCE of SOs at the end of the trimester for their appropriate action.
  • 20. College of Computer Studies Quality Education that WORKS • Self-evaluation survey on SOs by the students enrolled in selected courses – Before the end of each trimester, students enrolled in selected courses fill out a self-evaluation survey (see attached) assessing the attainment of the student outcomes for that particular course.
