Presenters: Sean Maw and Shaobo Huang (University of Saskatchewan, Canada)
The College of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, in Saskatoon, Canada, is currently redesigning its First Year (FY) program. One key element of that redesign is the adoption of competency based assessment (CBA). It will be implemented across all courses. In the Fall of 2020, in the midst of the COVID crisis, CBA was fully implemented in one of the core FY courses as a pilot. This presentation discussed key lessons from that pilot exercise.
