The presentation will describe a practical, light-weight, and effective assessment approach to involving students in assessing their own progress toward meeting course and program level learning outcomes. Research into the level of student engagement represents a valuable addition to assessment activities already being conducted at the program level. Funded by RIT's Student Learning and Outcomes Assessment Office, two faculty researchers surveyed students in three Computer Science classes to involve them in tracking their progress toward BS Computer Science program outcomes during these courses. This project and its preliminary results will be presented at this session.
