Engineering education has a major share in today's career opportunities for the students, contributing to the global industry revolution and in particular to Indian economy. This drastic growth in technical education is not producing at the same rate the quality graduates acceptable to industry, due to insufficient availability of qualified faculty, teaching methodology, evaluation techniques and processes. Mushrooming autonomous institutions are yet another possibilities for quality vulnerability for lack standardization and local understanding of various governance strategies for quality and process followed. Feedback and exit surveys plays an important role in governance. Current practice of faculty feedback by students do not represent the students' learning rather it speaks about faculty attributes focusing more on teaching methodology. Hence there is a need to focus on students' learning levels as a major component in feedback and exit surveys. Author of this paper propose a strategy as a case study on the use of exit surveys and its importance in governing quality of engineering education focusing on students' learning levels in outcome based learning environment (OBE).

Abstract


Engineering education has a major share in today's career opportunities for the students, contributing to the global industry revolution and in particular to Indian economy. This drastic growth in technical education is not producing at the same rate the quality graduates acceptable to industry, due to insufficient availability of qualified faculty, teaching methodology, evaluation techniques and processes. Mushrooming autonomous institutions are yet another possibilities for quality vulnerability for lack standardization and local understanding of various governance strategies for quality and process followed. Feedback and exit surveys plays an important role in governance. Current practice of faculty feedback by students do not represent the students' learning rather it speaks about faculty attributes focusing more on teaching methodology. Hence there is a need to focus on students' learning levels as a major component in feedback and exit surveys. Author of this paper propose a strategy as a case study on the use of exit surveys and its importance in governing quality of engineering education focusing on students' learning levels in outcome based learning environment (OBE).
