Design of Assessment System for Learning Outcomes and Competences in Engineering Programs
Universities must focus the training process of their students to integrate theoretical and scientific rigor and academic exigency with the requirements of the work environment. Competency-based curricular designs have been consolidated to integrate knowledge, practices, and attitudes, with a focus on achieving significant learning. Because of this, the monitoring and evaluation of competencies and learning outcomes is relevant to meet these objectives. The processes of continuous improvement and quality assurance focus on these monitoring and evaluation systems. However, despite the relevance of this, in university practice, evaluations do not directly consider the monitoring of learning outcomes and competencies. Because of this, this research proposes the Design of Assessment System for Learning Outcomes and Competences in Engineering Programs, to know the progress and achievement obtained by students in this perspective.
