About this Workshop

Prerequisites

  • Fundamentals of Program Assessment Workshop
    or
  • Institute for the Development of Excellence in Assessment Leadership (IDEAL)

If you have already attended an ABET Fundamentals of Assessment Workshop and are confident in your assessment knowledge, but looking for a highly focused, hands-on group session to hone and refine your current process, this is your next step.

Developing sustainable assessment processes that lead to quality improvement of educational programs is an iterative process. Most experts would agree that the first few cycles of an assessment process lead to more improvements in the actual assessment processes than they do in improvements of student learning. This workshop is designed to help you take a critical look at your current assessment processes and take them to the next level of quality. Time is spent on critiquing processes and developing ways to ensure consistency in the assessment of student learning across multiple faculty evaluators. In this workshop, you build on the principles taught in ABET Fundamentals to develop more efficient and effective processes.

During the Advanced Program Assessment workshop, you work in a small group to critique performance indicators, undergo rubric calibration training, critique assessment processes, and engage in exercises centered on data visualization and evaluation. You leave the workshop with the ability to apply what you learned to improve your own assessment program.

The workshop prepares you to:

  • Create a sustainable assessment process.
  • Assure consistency in multi-faculty evaluations.
  • Identify ways to improve your current assessment processes.

James Warnock, Ph.D.

James Warnock, Ph.D., received his bachelor’s in biological sciences from the University of Wolverhampton, UK. Warnock earned his master’s in biochemical engineering as well as his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Birmingham, UK.
During his doctoral studies, he spent two months as a research fellow in the Department of Chemical Sciences and Engineering at Kobe University, Japan. James relocated to Atlanta, GA, in 2003 and spent two years as a post-doctoral research fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology with a joint appointment between the School of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Biomedical Engineering.
James is currently the Founding Chair and a Professor in the School of Chemical, Materials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Georgia. He is actively involved in engineering education research and has earned international attention for his work on using problem-based learning to enable students to develop their professional skills. In 2011, he was invited to present work at the Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium, hosted by the National Academy of Engineering. Before coming to Athens, James served as a professor and associate dean for academic affairs at Mississippi State University’s Bagley College of Engineering. In this role, he was responsible for coordinating the assessment activities of 11 engineering/computer science programs within eight departments.
In July 2011, he was invited to become the first Adjunct Director for Professional Development at ABET. He has consequently been involved in the planning, preparation and facilitation of numerous ABET workshops, including the one-day Program Assessment Workshops and IDEAL. He is an ABET Senior IDEAL Scholar.
