A new method for course planning and learning assessment in engineering design courses is presented. The method is based upon components of design activity that are organized into a design attribute framework. The learning objectives of design courses can be expressed within this framework by selecting from among these components. The framework can also be used to guide the development of survey instruments for use in assessment. These two uses of the design attribute framework are illustrated in the context of a freshman engineering design course
