Software Development Evaluation and Assessment

Outcome Assessment
Foundation: Graduates shall have a strong foundation in science, mathematics, and engineering,
and can apply this fundamental knowledge to software engineering tasks.
CS-MFT*. The department should review these scores on a annual basis to assess program trends.
Development: Graduates can effectively apply software engineering practice over the entire system lifecycle.
This includes requirements engineering, analysis, prototyping, design, implementation, testing, maintenance
activities and management of risks involved in software and embedded systems.

Evaluation of Project Deliverables from:

  • Software Development
  • Software and Systems Engineering
  • Computer Applications Practicum

Methodology: Graduates know various classical and evolving software engineering methods,
can select appropriate methods for projects and development teams, and can refine and
apply them to achieve project goals.
Same as above
Professionalism: Graduates are knowledgeable of the ethics, professionalism, and cultural
diversity in the work environment.
Evaluation of required papers for Technology and Society
Quality: Graduates can apply basic software quality assurance practices to ensure that
software designs, development, and maintenance meets or exceeds applicable standards.
Evaluation of the deliverable documents and code produced in programming projects..
Presentation: Graduates have effective written and oral communication skills. Graduates
can prepare and publish the necessary documents required throughout the project lifecycle.
Evalation of Required Presentations using this metric: Presentation Metric
Teamwork: Graduates can effectively contribute to project discussions, presentations,
and reviews.

Evaluation of teamwork in Software and Systems Engineering, using these rubrics:

Growth: Graduates understand the need for life-long learning and can readily adapt to
new software engineering environments.
Evaluation Tools:
