Evaluation of Students' Score Distribution in the Subject "Mechanical Design"
Tokyo University of Science, 2641 Yamazaki, Noda-shi, Chiba-ken 278-8510, Japan
Students' achievement must be correctly evaluated. One of the best methods for evaluation is to study the students' score distribution. This is a mirror of their education. The following article deals with a change of students' score distribution resulting from a change of pedagogical circumstances in the subject Mechanical Design. Mechanical Design professors must teach students the synthesis of mechanical design. Unfortunately, the school hours for graphics or figures in Japanese universities have recently been decreasing and decreasing. This results in a lower level of the Mechanical Design education.
The article concludes with a discussion of consequences to be taken from the evaluation of students' real score distribution in the subject Mechanical Design.
Keywords: Education, Mechanical Design, students' score distribution, examination.
