Results: Figure 2 is an example table we used to evaluate course objective for CSET3150 Algorithm course. All the major courses have a table developed for assessment. Over the years, the tables can be modified to meet new requirements for continuous improvement. Figure 3 shows the evaluation matrix mapped Abet A through K to each course. Course evaluation using a course form maps the result from each course to this matrix. In Assessment meeting, CSET faculties evaluate the whole curriculum. Courses that are not meeting requirement will be improved or modified to close the loop. Minute from 2007 assessment meeting showed that most courses have met the requirement with 80% or more of the students having grade B or above. Some courses needed improvement. Our introduction course CSET1100 as example, had a high attrition rate. The programming language we used was not effective enough. Faculty committee decided to switch to Python, a nicer language with built in Object Oriented feature and multimedia support. Clicker technique was also introduced to the class to improve teacher student interaction in class. The clicker technique turns out to be so popular that we decide to employ it throughout the all the major classes.
