Abstract

The initial stages of the implementation of continuous assessment plans for the engineering programs at Kuwait University have been completed. Assessment is conducted at the course and program levels through direct and indirect measurements, and the results are being used for improvement. Although it is still early to evaluate the complete impact of the assessment process on student learning, preliminary results have been helpful in identifying issues that warrant immediate attention. It is expected that through this process the college and its programs will be able to improve curricula as well as other services that they provide to their constituents.
