ASEE rubric published
Dr. John K. Estell, professor of computer engineering and computer science, is one of the developers of a new rubric for the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), along with Dr. Brian P. Self of California Polytechnic State University and Dr. Elliot P. Douglas of the University of Florida.
The “ASEE 2012 Best PIC Paper and Best Conference Paper Competitions Rubric,” published on Feb. 2, is designed for use in the review process for the ASEE annual conference. The rubric will assist program chairs in nominating the best papers from their divisions, and will assist the chairs of the Professional Interest Councils in selecting the best conference paper through a relatively simple design that reflects best practices and is well-grounded in the literature.
In 2006, Estell and Dr. Juliet K. Hurtig, associate vice president for academic affairs, received the 2006 ASEE Design Engineering in Education Division Best Paper Award for their paper, “Using Rubrics for the Assessment of Senior Design Projects.”
