John J. Hwalek, Douglas Bousfield, Albert Co, Darrell Donahue, Paul Millard and M. Clayton Wheeler, Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of Maine, Orono, ME

An overview of the assessment process used in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at the University of Maine will begin with a discussion of how the department developed Program Outcomes in relation to the ABET 3a-k criteria. Then, the unique features of the assessment process will be discussed which include: Online Faculty Course Assessment Reports, targeted input from the Industrial Advisory Board, feedback from coop and intern mentors and a database for tracking program changes. Finally, a few examples will be presented which illustrate how the assessment results have been integrated and used to close the assessment loop.
