Abstract
Graduation design plays an important role in the cultivation of undergraduate students majoring in civil engineering. It aims to train students as skillful as possible by solving a complex project before they begin a new career. In order to improve the quality of graduation design, the oral defense stage was focused on. According to the characteristics of the conventional graduation design of major civil engineering, the problems in assessing students’ work were firstly discussed. It is found that the limited time and questions, the difficulty of questions, the students’ nervousness and the selected topics can greatly affect the students’ performance, resulting in the unfairness of scoring students’ work. Thus, it is suggested that the instructors’ and reviewers’ opinions, the introduction of direct instructors, a detailed scoring criterion, the students’ on-site operations and the detailed assessment records should be comprehensively considered to fairly evaluate students’ work in their oral defense.
