Based on multivariate data collected over three years, linear regression equations are developed and used to assess student learning in large sections of engineering economy taught at Virginia Tech. In each year (1993, 1994 and 1995), more than 350 students in the fall semester voluntarily participated in this research. This paper presents the principal findings of the study and demonstrates the use of multivariate linear regression for evaluating student performance (learning) in engineering economy.
