Assessment of student achievement using a grading system is a major task required of engineering educators. Most higher education institutions use a traditional, summative score-based grading system that relies on assigning an end-of-semester letter grade representative of each student’s achievement in the course. Most educators default to assigning student grades by tabulating scores for multiple assignments, summing assignment scores, and determining a final course grade based on a predetermined scale. Such an approach inherently fails to meet the conditions of sound assessment of student learnin ... (continued)

The complexity of modern technology is making it increasingly difficult for new engineering graduates to understand their job from a single domain perspective, much less the more limited perspective of a single sub-discipline within that domain. More employers are asking for students who understand a “systems perspective” of engineering. Unfortunately, the general idea of a “systems perspective” is a very nebulous concept that can change drastically depending on who is describing that perspective. In order to help define this perspective, a core set of technical systems competencies were identified ... (continued)

Inquiry-Based Learning Activities utilize a predict, observe, explain cycle coupled with collaborative learning. Individually, students are asked to predict the outcome of a physical scenario - for example, what rolls faster down a ramp, a hollow pipe or a solid cylinder? Students then discuss their answers with teammates, then do the experiment, and then try to explain the result using engineering principles. Participants will learn about the fundamentals of IBLAs, and start to formulate their own IBLAs for use in their classes.

At the core of physics educational goals lies a complete discussion of the importance and applications of vector manipulations. Students are typically exposed to vectors in their early physics regimen and will continue to use vectors for the entirety of their engineering career. Since vectors are of such importance, it is essential that every student leave the introductory physics sequence fluent in vector algebra.
