II.
Course Description and Objectives
Students study electrical instrumentation and measurement with an emphasis on experimental
methods using linear devices and circuits. All labs exercises correspond to instructional segments
in ELE 231.
The principle objective of this course is to have students perform one three-hour laboratory a
week working with electrical instrumentation and measurement.
III.
Reading Material
The Instructor will create handouts containing instructional material for laboratory and prelaboratory assignments.
IV.
Assessment Process
A primary means of assessing student performance is to measure how well course outcomes are
met. The ELE 291 expected outcomes correspond to a set of measurable performance criteria
(standards or tasks that must be met in order for the expected outcome to be met). The
performance criteria identify more clearly what is meant by each outcome and represent the
metrics used to determine achievement of the outcome. The performance criteria enable us to
identify the data to be collected in evidence of student achievement.
Students will work in groups of two. Groups of three will be separated by the instructor or TA
unless there are an odd number of students in lab.
Each lab experiment consists of a Pre-Lab, which is posted one week prior to its due date. PreLabs are completed prior to the lab experiment and turned in to the instructor at the beginning of
the lab session. (Pre-Labs turned in at the end of class receive a 2 point deduction.) Labs will be
turned in at the end of the lab session.
The Pre-Lab and Lab are graded on a 20-point scale. (Late reports receive a 2-point deduction
the first week and a 4-point deduction after that unless prior arrangements are made.) Reports not
handed in will receive a zero. No Pre-Lab or lab scores will be dropped. At least 70% of the
experiments must be completed or a failing grade is assigned for the course.

The TA assigns a class participation grade at the end of the semester.
Two labs will be performed individually, without a partner. These labs are Lab 5 and Lab 10.
These labs will be graded just like any other lab.
The final grades will be given as follows:


V.
40% Pre-Lab
50% Labs
10% Participation
Honor Policy
Everything you hand in must be your own work. Any sign of dishonesty will be treated very
seriously. Consequences include but are not limited to a failing grade in the course.
