Examples of Assessment Results for Student Learning Outcomes 2008-2009
Student Learning Outcome #2
Design and conduct materials science and engineering experiments and analyze and interpret the data.
Index as many of the peaks as you can from the x-ray experiment shown on the class website. You may reduce the problem to two spectra, one at room temperature, and one sufficiently above 277°C. The original data is also available on the class website. You may use all tools at your disposal (including Crystal Maker and Crystal Diffract).
Percentage of students scoring at a level indicating acceptable performance or higher: 87%
Student Learning Outcome #3
Design a materials science and engineering system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and sustainability constraints.
