Amena Ferdousi, M. Mostafizur Rahman

Abstract


Since the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) has made Outcome Based Assessment (OBA) compulsory towards program accreditation it has been one of the vital interests of most engineering departments in Bangladesh. When considering the mapping of the Course outcome (CO) to Program Outcomes (PO) implementation of the OBA may not be an easy task. This paper reports the analysis procedure of the CO and PO achievement for an B.Sc. course on Fundamentals of Statistics, a subject, which is part of curriculum of Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering at Eastern University, Bangladesh. As a sum, this paper contributes complete process and an example investigation for Outcome Based Valuation starting from course curriculum progress to its CO-PO achievement based on definite criteria.
