Summary form only given. Sixty engineering institutions have participated in the NSF supported Engineering Education Coalitions Program. Within a collaborative coalition structure, faculty, staff and students have worked together to design, implement and institutionalize engineering curriculum reform and innovations. The approach to reform varies by each coalition and by institution. Regardless of approach, the question to answer is whether these reform activities have had the intended impact on engineering education. An integral part of each coalition's strategy has been to assess and evaluate the impact of these reform activities. This paper explores what has been learned over the past five years from assessment and evaluation initiatives.
