CUES-AM Online: A program assessment protocol
Monika Bubacz, &
Pittsburgh State University
CUES-AM is the choice assessment protocol for the activities of the
Center for NanoComposites and Multifunctional Materials (CNCMM).
CNCMM has the mission of implementing the inter-institutional
Multifunctional Materials for Naval Structures project. The choice
of CUES-AM draws from the project’s previous experience on the
NSF-sponsored Interdisciplinary Materials Research program, and
the development of CUES-AM as a user-friendly online assessment
protocol. CUES-AM uses expertly pre-determined, site-specific program
attributes—essential knowledge elements (EKEs)—in conjunction
with EKE factors such as efficacy, validity, comprehensiveness,
interest, usefulness, and difficulty to evaluate program participants’
satisfaction level. CUES-AM Online quantifies the participants’ ratings
into a satisfaction index rating scale of very poor to excellent.
CUES-AM is remotely accessible via the Internet, and the generated
output is made available to the user electronically.
