Abstract
Assessment of student outcomes remains the most crucial issue in any plan that aims to address the requirements of ABET 2000. All specialization courses offered in the department should meet the required and pre-defined student outcomes. The achievement of these student outcomes indicates that the students achieved the program objectives. In this paper a simplified approach is described to assess the degree of achievement of the student outcomes through the direct assessment methods.
