Abstract

Six WPI engineering programs were evaluated under Criteria 2000 during a pilot accreditation visit in 1996. The WPI PLAN consists of degree requirements focused on the achievement of outcomes related to those of Criteria 2000. The mapping of degree requirement outcomes to the elements of the Criteria hinged on the translation of student performance metrics and their interpretation. Not surprisingly, substantial effort was necessary to ensure the identification of all elements of Criteria 2000, including the applicable Program Criteria in the academic program outcomes.
