Abstract

In this study, students were asked to build engineering prototypes, typically working in teams to solve real design problems, following an authentic, reflective engineering design process. The findings presented two aspects of learning: engagement and achievement. Engagement has the potential to highlight students’ performance in a way that standardized assessment methods do not reveal.
