The College of Engineering has developed several innovative tools to automating the processes of assessment and evaluation of outcomes of university, college of engineering and individual ABET engineering programs. The authors develop algorithms and mathematical models, then directly write computer code or work with software engineering students to develop the software. This same team provides workshops to demonstrate to students, advisors and faculty the value and use of these web-based tools. Quantitative information is automatically plotted and users most recent results displayed relative to historical trends. One example is the Texas Tech "Mock FE" administered by the college to senior students two weeks prior to the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam. An individual's results of this four-hour test are available to each student and plotted relative to historical trends thus allowing each student to predict his/her performance on the FE relative to each subject.
