Online Working Drawing Review and Assessment


This paper describes the development and implementation of an online working drawing review video and online assessment tool. Particular attention was paid to dimensioning and ASME ANSI Y14 standards with the goal of improving the quality of the working drawings required in final design project reports. All members of freshmen design teams in the fall 2008 semester were required to watch this video and pass an online assessment before they could turn in their final design project reports. The School of Engineering maintained scanned copies of design project reports for the fall 2006 and 2007 semesters. A separate working drawing assessment rubric was developed and used to evaluate the working drawings for these semesters so that a comparison could be made with the project working drawings submitted for the fall 2008 semester. The working drawing review videos and the online assessment tool are available on request for EDG faculty members.

I. Introduction

Many first-semester freshman engineering design courses cover a wide range of topics such as the principles of the engineering design process, effective teamwork and project management, engineering graphics, three-dimensional solid modeling, oral and written presentations, an introduction to engineering analysis, and an introduction to specific engineering disciplines through industry tours and speakers. In addition, many include a Conceive-Design-Implement- Operate (CDIO)1 or similar type of project experience. It is difficult to fit all this content into a one-semester course. Often student teams do a good job with the analysis and fabrication of the physical prototypes of their projects; however, their final project reports are usually of lower quality. This seems to be especially true of their working drawings. The students have covered this material and have submitted related drawings assignments successfully earlier in the semester, so the challenge is to find ways to get them to review this material on their own before turning in their reports without taking up additional class time. Could an online review and assessment tool be effective in addressing this problem?
