Steps Employed By Evaltools® 6 to Calculate the EAMU Vectors
Example of PIs EAMU vector calculation employing weighting factors.
In the example shown in Table for PI EAMU vector and its average computation employing weighting factors for various types of assessments, assessments Hw3 and Hw8 are selected for measuring a specific PI ABET_PI_5_3. These assessments are weighted (application of weighting factor according to course grading policy and multiplication factor depending upon the course format; let us say arbitrarily those are 5% for Hw3 and 7% for Hw8), added together and then normalized to 100 for each student. The PI EAMU classification for each student in the class (indicated by data in the second column from the left labeled PI_5_3) is obtained from this weighted and normalized to 100 score (right most column labeled percent-weighted). The PI EAMU vector (3,1,1,2) for the class is obtained from the counts of various individual student PI EAMU classifications which are 3 Excellent: scores >= 90%, 1 Adequate: scores >= 75% and < 90%, 1 Minimal: scores >= 60% and < 75% and 2 Unsatisfactory: scores < 60%. Finally the average of the EAMU vector for this specific PI_5_3is 2.86 which is obtained after rescaling to 5 the 3 point scale PI EAMU average value computed as per the EAMU equation discussed earlier.
