Abstract

This study aims to assess the students' achievement of program outcomes (POs) for the Reinforced Concrete Design Course. The POs achievement for students in session 2009/2010 is evaluated and then compared with the previous session of 2008/2009. The course was selected as it is a compulsory course for all students in the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering (JKAS) and furthermore the project given to the students are always related to the real structural design project. POs achievement for the session 2009/2010 was evaluated based on the new improved POs compared to the previous POs used in session 2008/2009. The assessment of POs achievement is measured based on final examination, mid semester examination, tutorials and group project. The comparison results between the two sessions have successfully showed the increment of students' achievement around 9-39% on all identified POs. The comparison is made in view to look on how effective the continuous quality improvement (CQI) that has been proposed in the previous session can affect the students' performance. The effect of changes in the new improved PO as outlined in the course will also be assessed and discussed.
