Description Of Individual Of Student Assessments

In 2004, the Florida Board of Governors adopted a resolution requiring universities in the State University System to devise an Academic Learning Compact (ALC) for each baccalaureate degree program. The ALC is envisioned as a compact or agreement between university and student that will establish a minimum level of competence at the bachelor’s degree level.

The ALC includes three components:

  • Student Learning Outcomes (SLO): what skills each student will acquire
  • Individual Student Assessment (ISA): the evaluation instrument(s)
  • Assessment Criteria: expected level of achievement in the ISA

Description of Individual of Student Assessments

As part of the ALC, assessments of individual assignments are done for two designated courses targeted to each particular Student Learning Outcome (SLO). Students are assessed at the beginning and end of their curriculum.

Each SLO is evaluated on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 = outstanding, 3 = acceptable and 1 = not achieved.

Assessment is provided by the instructor of the course according to departmental standards. Students must achieve a score of 3 or higher on at least two of the assessment scores in order to demonstrate achievement of the SLO. The courses to be used for assessment purposes are:

Content Knowledge Skills
SLO #1 EEL 3008 – Physics of Electrical Engineering
EEL 3135 – Introduction to Signals and Systems
Critical Thinking Skills
SLO #2 EEL 3701C – Digital Logic and Computer Systems
EEL 4924C – Electrical Engineering Design 2
SLO #3 EEL 3923C – Electrical Engineering Design 1
EEL 4924C – Electrical Engineering Design 2
Communication Skills
SLO #4 EEL 3000 – Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering
EEL 4924C – Electrical Engineering Design 2
