Why Assessment?

By on Jan 22, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Assessment and evaluation are hot topics across the educational continuum. Words like “standards” and “accountability” are issues of debate among politicians, school administrators, parents, and higher education officials. In a world where people what to get the most “bang for their buck”, determining the extent to which goals are met and whether outcomes (e.g., grades) are improving as a result of interventions is needed.

i2e2a is committed to translating empirical research to practice and vice versa. With projects that explore topics such as engineering leadership, pedagogy (teaching), and graduate education, our team is committed to enhancing higher education as we know it.

Take time to peruse our new site and read the following paper so that you can understand how we translate empirical findings to practice via an observation tool called the Global Real-time Tool for Teaching Enhancement (G-RATE). Revised from initial work in the VaNTH ERC, this next generation tool has the potential to revolution the world.

Join i2e2a as we change the face of engineering education assessment!
