Assessment of Engineering Technology Education using a Learning Paradigm Approach Mysore Narayanan, Miami University, OhioAssessment helps us understand which students learn best under what conditions.According to guidelines proposed by the American Association for Higher Education(AAHE Assessment Forum, 1992), Assessment requires attention to outcomes but alsoand equally to the experiences that lead to those outcomes. The important aspect here isto move away from a teaching paradigm to learning paradigm. Clifford O.
