ABET and ASIIN are two internationally recognized accreditation agencies that have a set of evaluation criteria for the accreditation of engineering programs and engineering technologies. ABET focuses on the achievement of student outcomes, while ASIIN focuses on an effective educational process that allows achieving learning outcomes. By joining both criteria, a more demanding set of evaluation criteria is achieved that can be used as a reference for international programs in engineering and technology. In this paper we describe the methodology to identify, measure and assess learning outcomes, we also explain useful tools to inform and evaluate the results of the measurement. Additionally, we propose the use of the Performance Vector (VD) as an indicator of the Performance Criteria (CD), which can be used in the key activities of the educational process. With the use of rubrics, VD, CD and special formats to inform the results of the measurement, the representation in a control board of the achievement of the learning outcomes is facilitated. In this way it is easy to identify improvement opportunities to take action as part of continuous improvement. Part of this methodology was implemented in the Tecsup programs and was useful in the accreditation and re-accreditation with ABET, ASIIN, ENAEE and ICACIT.
