e3an Engineering Assessment Workshops

The Electrical and Electronic Engineering Assessment Network (e3an) will be showcasing its question database to the UK academic community in three workshops during Spring 2003

  • Loughborough - 29th January 2003
  • Southampton - 6th February 2003
  • Belfast - 14th February 2003

All workshops will run from 10.30-15.00. There is no charge for attending these events.

Provisional Workshop Programme

The workshop will demonstrate the content of the database and explore ways in which it might be used in engineering education.
Almost 100 academic consultants across the country have contributed to the database. Topics covered:

  • Circuit Theory
  • Computer Tools
  • Control
  • Datacomms
  • Digital Electronics and Microelectronics
  • Electromagnetism
  • Maths for Engineers
  • Physics of Semi-Conductors
  • Power Electronics
  • Signal Processing
  • Telecomms

A copy of the database can be downloaded from this web site http://www.e3an.ac.uk/database/

Some questions are suitable for direct use in Computer Assisted Assessments others are in more traditional formats such as short answer and example exam questions.
Questions can be output in a range of computer and paper based formats. The question banks are currently being trialed and their use evaluated.
The project is a response to calls to improve assessment and feedback to students in electrical and electronic engineering identified as a priority during the last set of quality reviews.
