Abstract A new method of assessment is developed that comprehensively maps students' progress in a course. The technique involves the use of two grading rubrics measuring performance in technical and conceptual proficiency, respectively. With these rubrics, one can identify students' progress and learning more effectively and future activities can be adapted accordingly. This paper discusses the development of these rubrics, how to use them, how to interpret their results, and describes an experiment showing their effectiveness in a freshman engineering classroom.
