The accreditation self-study looms on the horizon, and your department needs to provide supporting evidence that it is achieving its goals. A large part of the effort required to accomplish this task is to show that the department is properly assessing its performance related to the objectives generated by the department goals. The Engineering Technology Department of the College of Engineering at Texas Tech University faced the completion of this accreditation requirement last year and set out to develop an approach that would provide ongoing assessment of the department goal-based objectives and supply more than adequate resources for the completion of any accreditation requirement associated with verifying that those objectives were met.
