The results of a preliminary study that forms the basis of a proposal to the National Science Foundation Assessment of Student Achievement program are presented. The proposal outlines a two-year project to develop methods of assessing the effectiveness of engineering students' use of writing as a design practice. The ABET document listing programmatic goals states that all students should 'develop communication skills so that they can perform engineering functions effectively'. The linking of communication skills to engineering functions calls for engineering-specific objectives for the teaching of writing.
