EVOC 503 WA4
Post Course Survey
Specific Information and Criteria
OBJECTIVE - Each EVOC 503 scholar will develop a Post Course Survey instrument, in accordance with the six criteria indicated below, for a specific course that he/she might teach or is presently teaching.
RATIONALE - In order to continue to improve the quality of their instruction, instructors need to find out what the students "feel" about how the instruction has been designed and delivered. A Post Course Survey instrument can/should be used at the end of any/every course to solicit information from students about specific aspects of the course. There is no such thing as a "definitive" survey: it is the responsibility of each instructor to develop and revise post course survey instruments that will provide a good indication about how students feel about the instruction they received.
CRITERIA - It is expected that each scholar will:
- Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.
- Develop an "Post Course Survey" instrument for a particular course. The survey should not be more than 1 page (typewritten or word processed).
- The survey should be designed so that students are required rate statements made about the course and actually write clarifying and/or additional information.
- Include at least seven statements that students can rate on a five point scale with raitings such as "strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, strongly disagree."
- Avoid statements that include overly strong, overly general or inappropriate language (such as "this is the best course I've ever had" or "this course really sucked").
- Include a designated space at the bottom of the survey form for "Additional Comments."
RESOURCES - Solicit information from teachers who have used end of course surveys. Visit the library and/or use an online search engine to look for information on "end of course surveys." Take a look at Fred Fudrucker's WA4 Example to see what a correctly formatted WA4 Post Course Survey should look like.
One point is associated with each of the six criteria listed above.
This assignment may be submitted via e-mail, posted on a Web site or turned in as a hard copy document. Under all circumstances it should be completed on or before the date indicated on the EVOC 502/3 Class Schedule.
