Organizing Effective Display Materials for ABET Criterion 4: Continuous Improvement

ABET Criterion 4 focuses on continuous improvement and serves to guide educational institutions toward greater efficacy and quality. This session seeks to empower educators, administrators and evaluators to navigate Criterion 4 with a focus on developing effective display materials that support the assessment and evaluation processes and drive meaningful change. We will first explore the role of well-organized materials and structured documentation in fostering a culture of continuous improvement. The second topic is the display of assessment data. We will showcase best practices in visualizing assessment data, making it accessible to all stakeholders and facilitating data-driven decision-making. The session will also discuss documentation of the essential evaluation steps that underpin the process of decision-making and “closing the loop.” By the end of this session, attendees will possess a comprehensive understanding of the documentation needs related to Criterion 4.
