This paper presents a model that can help an organization work through the complex process of writing measurable outcomes for ABET/EAC's newly developed outcomes-based accreditation process. A visual representation of the model in the form of a pyramid is presented to demonstrate the relationship between measurable outcomes and other elements of an outcomes(More)
In Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman (1995) discusses the effect of emotional competence on optimum performance. He describes the state of flow in which optimum performance occurs. Literature from coaching sports talks about this state of total concentration, as well. Our goal as teachers is to provide an atmosphere where flow occurs easily and the(More)
Teaching probabilistic methods (PM) to undergraduate electrical engineering students is often difficult because of the increased conceptual level of the material compared to their previous learning experiences. Here the authors describe, however, that with the help of software tools like MATLAB, an instructor can unravel the mysteries of probability theory(More)
Considerable interest has been shown in improving retention rates and motivation by improving student satisfaction, particularly at the freshman level. In this paper, we describe a new, team-taught, interdisciplinary, design-oriented introduction to engineering course that has proven to be a very successful motivational experience for first-year electrical(More)
In this paper, the authors describe the process that has transformed the attitudes of their faculty toward outcomes assessment from one of resistance to one of cooperation and action, an important precursor to buy in. They describe the questions that they have had to answer, the arguments that faculty used to defend their initial resistance, the(More)
We report on the preliminary results from an on-going study of students' ability to gauge how well they are prepared for a particular exam by asking them to rate their preparedness in conjunction with the exam. The study is being conducted in two kinds of courses, an engineering ethics course with essay questions, and a Statics course with traditional(More)
