This paper addresses the following issues: an implementation model for undergraduate portfolios, a survey of other internal assessment tools, and the success of the implementation. In the Spring semester of 1997, the Department of Industrial Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University decided that a portfolio program for its undergraduates would be a useful assessment tool for the future evaluations of its BSIE program under the ABET-2000 accreditation criteria. Dr. Ram sought and

The implementation of the approach began with the Fall 1997 freshman class. The SUCCEED coalition also requested that a literature survey of other internal assessment tools be completed to support the efforts of the Outcomes Assessment team of the SUCCEED coalition. This survey is presented in a separate chapter.
