in the assigned to me widget on the JIRA 6.1.5 dashboard an engineer does not see any of the issues that they created and that are assigned to them.
Is this by design or is there something that should be changed in the search parameter
The assigned-to-me gadget does exactly that - the search really is just "assignee = current user".
If issues are not appearing, then they're assigned to someone else or the user does not have the permission needed to see the project, or they don't match the issue security level if that has been set. Or, possibly, the list is so long, the issues are off the end of the list
(That paragraph is assuming that the indexing is working too - can you search for the issues by that assignee?)
Try also doing a re-indexing. If you don't have your indexes updated, some issues may not be returned by filters, and then your dashboard will not show all the issues you expect.
You can re-index your issues at Administration > System > Index.
