Methodology For Course Outcomes Attainment Analysis For An Engineering Course

[Full Text]

Course Outcomes, Outcome based education, Program Outcomes, Weights.



Accreditation is a quality assurance and improvement process that determines whether the set educational objectives meet a general standard of quality. It is an endorsement of how good these expectations are satisfied. Outcome based education system (OBE) emphasizes on quantifying what the students are capable of doing. Program outcomes represent the knowledge, skills and attitudes the students should have at the end of program. Program outcomes can be directly measured through Course Outcomes which are broad statements indicating knowledge and skills the student acquires at the end of a course. The outcome based education model is based on defining various parameters called as Graduates Attributes. Assessment of learning outcomes is one of the key aspects of OBE model. This is done through assessment of course outcomes for each course in a program. In this paper, an approach based on assigning two step weights for assessment of course outcomes is presented. The method proposed provides the result of course outcome attainment. The results are obtained through a program in MS Excel.
