Civil Engineering PEV Reflections: The Most Recent Lessons LearnedFor the 2011-2012 ABET accreditation cycle, there have been a number of changes across thecriteria that have impacted the way in which programs must approach their accreditation efforts.The most significant change is related to the reporting of assessment activities and their use forprogram improvement. For the first time this year, assessment results of program educationalobjectives and student outcomes are reported in Criterion 4, Continuous Improvement.Additionally, there have been changes to the former Criterion 9, Program Criteria. The ProgramCriteria is no longer numbered, but more importantly, contains some fairly significant changesimpacting the assessment of student performance. The changes include no longer requiringprograms to specifically incorporate the program criteria in their student outcomes and no longerrequiring programs to assess the degree to which students are achieving the program criteria.The purpose of this paper will be to capture the experiences of several Civil EngineeringProgram Evaluators following accreditation visits they have made to a variety of programsduring this accreditation cycle. It will take the reader from initial contact with the program chairthrough review of the self study and student transcripts to the on-site visit and offer lessonslearned as well as advice on how best to meet the current ABET Criteria.
