  Level of Achievement: 1 Below Expectations Level of Achievement: 2 Meets Expectations Level of Achievement: 3 Exceeds Expectations

Does not realize when major components of the problem are missing and has no coherent strategies for problem solving

Has a vision of the whole problem, and has some strategies for problem solving.

Demonstrates understanding of how various pieces of the problem relate to each other and the whole


Does not see the connection between theory and practical problem solving

Connects theoretical concepts to practical problem-solving when prompted and is beginning to integrate previous knowledge and new information.

Formulates strategies for solving problem and can relate theoretical concepts to practical problem solving


Demonstrates solution implementing simple application of one formula or equation with close analogies to class/lecture problems

Demonstrates solution with integration of diverse concepts with useful relationships and connects theoretical concepts to practical problem solving.

Demonstrates creative synthesis of solution, creates new alternatives, and relates theoretical concepts to practical problem solving


Students studying in lab


Electrical engineers work on the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and how we use it. Computer engineers design and build the hardware and software that run our global marketplace. Think about the gadgets you plug into on a daily basis. How many of them are powered by electricity or computer technology?
