The assessment techniques, used in the evaluation of the Design (EPICS) program at CSM, are discussed. EPICS comprises the first two required courses of the design stem. The process, used to develop a scoring rubric for the evaluation of the students' final reports and the results of piloting the effectiveness of that rubric on the evaluation of the sophomore EPICS course, was also described. Scoring rubrics are useful in the evaluation of students' performances that evolve over an extended period. Over the course of a semester, EPICS student work in teams to solve problems and develop final reports based on these efforts.
