Welcome to the Florida International University’s Knight Foundation School of Computing and Information Sciences Assessment page. Our goal is to continually improve the quality and scale of our education programs to allow us to produce graduates who are ready to face academic and career-oriented challenges.

Assessment Procedures

I. Introduction

The Knight Foundation School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University uses many different assessment mechanisms to assess the extent to which its undergraduate program objectives are being met. Further, the School has defined procedures to evaluate the assessment results and identify ways to improve its curriculum deemed necessary and appropriate by its faculty.
CIS currently uses four survey instruments:

  • Course Outcomes Survey by Students for each course
  • Course Outcomes Survey by Instructors for each course
  • Survey of graduating students
  • Survey of alumni


In addition to these survey instruments, we seek recommendations from other important sources including the Industrial Advisory Board of the School, undergraduate women’s group, ACM student chapter, and the like. We will reevaluate these recommendation mechanisms in the future and design survey mechanisms for individual constituencies if so warranted.
