3. Students will demonstrate that they have internalized the values of self evaluation and continual improvement in their communication skills
Our guiding intent for the project is to further develop currently available materials and to propagate the methods for using CPR as a means of using active learning as a feedback loop for both student and instructor in engineering design. Although currently limited to the written mode of communication, CPR lends itself well to the higher learning objectives reached with a feedback loop. This process is shown below in Figure 1.

Effective formative and summative assessments by a well-qualified outside evaluator will help to ensure the effectiveness and universality of the enhanced CPR model. Dianne Raubenheimer serves as the project external evaluator. She is currently the Director of Assessment for the College of Engineering at North Carolina State University. She will guide the team through a well-planned agenda of assessment tasks:
1. Develop revised evaluation rubrics for assessing student’s written, oral, and visual communications products starting from rubrics currently being used in the Communication across the Curriculum (CxC) program, and building a focus on anticipated student learning outcomes, with due consideration of the reviews and recommendations of the Project Advisory Panel, the Engineering Communication Advisory Council, and the External Evaluator.
2. Develop surveys for assessing student perceptions and opinions about the program with due consideration of the reviews and recommendations of the CPR Project Advisory Panel, the CXC Advisory Panel, and the External Evaluator.
