This paper is concerned with the development case of CEA(Course-Embedded Assessment) design tool for engineering education accreditation operations department for CEA system implemented. Each university or programs are already devoting efforts to build research and CEA system for CEA applied to. In order to effectively apply the CEA studies for each program it is required and particularly, the preferred way to build an operating system is considered a difficult situation of the course unit. Therefore, this case study and to propose a method and procedures required to assessment the design basis for curriculum and program assessment unit in terms of the applicability of CEA, proposes a virtual application results. The information proposed in this case study is determined that could be used in the design for the outcomes and assessment of a variety of programs as one of the steps to build the CEA systems.
