In recent years, worldwide educational institutions especially engineering and technical institutes
observed a lack in the traditional education system which has many limitations regarding the assessment of
technical knowledge and skills of the engineers. In the context of the above-mentioned issue Outcome-Based
Education (OBE) model was specified by Washington Accord (WA) which involves the assessment and evaluation
process in engineering education to demonstrate the quality of graduates by measuring their performance and
technical skills. The manual record-keeping cannot extract meaningful information about these skills and qualities.
Therefore, the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) is trying to implement the OBE system in all accredited Degree
Awarding Institutes (DAIs) of Pakistan. In this paper, we designed a real-time application based on Microsoft excel
for the assessment and evaluation of student performance at the undergraduate level. In this application, the
mapping of Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs), as well as Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs), has been designed
according to course contents. Self-assessment reports of both student and teacher are prepared after analyzing
student’s performance and teacher’s contributions respectively. This paper also proposes the easy usage of the OBE
system with the results and the case study courses described for the better attainment of CLOs and PLOs.
