An important part of maintaining and continuously improving programs is assessing student objectives to evaluate the impact of change. This paper reviews an infrastructure that was designed to give continuous periodic direct measurements of retained relevant knowledge throughout a computer science and computer engineering baccalaureate curriculum. This infrastructure is designed to give immediate feedback to students and instructors as well as long-term assessment of program health. Additionally, due to the continuous nature of the assessment, its deployment is designed to avoid undue burden in deployment.
