ABET Terminology Used By the Faculty of Engineering

The current 14 programs of the faculty of Engineering adopt the following ABET terminology:

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

As defined by ABET, “Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies”.  The PEOs are therefore broad statements describing knowledge and skills that our engineering graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation from KAU. The program must have published program educational objectives that are consistent with the mission of the institution, the needs of the various constituencies, and the ABET criteria. There must be a documented and effective process, involving program constituencies, for the periodic review of these program educational objectives.

 

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 knowledge, skills and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. Student outcomes are outcomes a through k plus any additional outcomes that may be articulated by the program. The program must have documented student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives.

Course Learning Outcomes/Objectives (CLOs):

CLOs are specific observable (measurable) actions that the students should be able to perform if they have mastered the course materials. ABET requires specifying how these CLOs are related to the student outcomes and the degree to which the course will contribute to the achievement of the student outcomes.

Assessment:

Assessment is one or more processes that identify, collect, and prepare data to evaluate the attainment of student outcomes and program educational objectives. Effective assessment uses relevant direct, indirect, quantitative and qualitative measures as appropriate to the objective or outcome being measured. Appropriate sampling methods may be used as part of an assessment process.

Evaluation:

Evaluation is one or more processes that interpret the data and evidence accumulated through assessment processes. Evaluation determines the extent to which student outcomes and program educational objectives are being attained. Evaluation results in decisions and actions regarding program improvement.
