Day 229 Task – Preparing and Completing the Course Assessment Report for Plant Design Project Course

Finally after reading the book Eat That Frog, I decided to work on the Course Assessment Report (CAR) for the Capstone Plant Design Project (PDP) Course. It is such a very huge and detail course. Imagine having 14 Course Learning Outcome (CLO). Imagine all the massive calculations and analysis that needed to be done. Alhamdulillah, I managed to complete up to the the critical stage which is to insert students marks. Unfortunately after that I cannot proceed further even after I used the internet back home. The CAR Website keep on processing or hang. I will continue to complete the CQI and finalize the CAR for PDP tomorrow, InsyaAllah.

Some minor tasks that I also performed today were rehearsing for tomorrow’s Webminar about Problem Solving Using TRIZ (wait for my update tomorrow) and also reading a master thesis proposal for a proposal defense by Riyadh. He is being supervised by my colleague, Dr. Muhammad Tahir. So far, I have completed reading chapter 1 and scroll other chapters and it is looking good. The in depth and quality is there. It should be a fast and easy session tomorrow.

Day 184 Task – Preparing Open Book Examination for Engineering Courses

This is one webminar that I am involved in directly as the Chairperson. It was an amazing experience.

The COVID-19 pandemic affected the normal way of Teaching-Learning and Assessment conduct in education. Teaching becomes remote and alternative assessments are prevalent. Open book examinations have always been an alternative assessment used in engineering education. The nature of the complexity of engineering problems require application of several principles, tasks and/or standards or codes of practice to solve. The first part of the webinar explains the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) & Engineering Technology Accreditation Council (ETAC) Guiding Principles on Teaching-Learning and Assessment Implementation during COVID-19 Pandemic, which stipulated that all programmes are to ensure the attainment of the 12 Programme Outcomes (POs) according to the Standards and the purpose of accreditation shall not be compromised. How open book examinations can be used will be elaborated. The second part of the webinar focuses on utilising Constructive Alignment as the underpinning principle to make open book examination questions. Tips and examples on coming up with open book examinations will also be shared.
