SME recently launched the EET outcome assessment for 2- and 4-year colleges and universities, working as a strategic partner in conjunction with the IEEE organization as well as the ECETDHA (Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Department Heads Association). The program is available to all EET programs wanting the outcome assessment to help support their ABET (or other) accreditation requirements. SME wants to work with Educators to further the standardization of knowledge and the transfer of that knowledge from educator to student among colleges/universities. The cost is $80.00 per exam.
Your benefits of using the report:
- Support ABET or other assessment requirements
- Document trends in student & program performance
- Ensure the program is meeting program objectives
- Guide future curriculum content decisions
- Ensure that student knowledge links with industry standards
- Support grant proposals
Your students' benefits:
- Earn a knowledge certificate – a great resume builder!
- Identify students' areas of strength and those that may require more study
- Stand out from the crowd with well-balanced EET knowledge
- Begin a career with validated Electrical and Electronic technology knowledge on day one

FIRST USE OF A PROTOTYPE NATIONALLY- NORMED ASSESSMENT EXAM FOR EET PROGRAMS
A paper published in the proceedings of and presented at the American Society for Engineering Education's annual conference, Louisville, KY, June of 2010 (paper # AC2010-163.)
Written by Ron Land, Penn State University - New Kensington
Excerpt: For many years, faculty and administrators of electrical/electronic engineering technology (EET) degree programs have voiced a need for a comprehensive, nationally-normed exam, available to all EET graduates, that would provide a valid assessment of the cumulative skills of students completing their programs. ABET's adoption of outcomes-based accreditation criteria, which emphasize assessment and continuous program improvement based on objective measurements, heightened the importance of such an exam. As a result, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology Department Heads Association (ECETDHA) undertook a project beginning in 2007 to develop such a test. Several key accomplishments were necessary for this project to be successful. Read full paper (PDF)
