The University of Michigan Report of the Committee on Student Evaluation of Courses.
Michigan Univ., Ann Arbor.
This document contains: (1) the report of the University of Michigan Committee on Student Evaluation of Courses and its recommendations; (2) a report on student opinion of courses and teaching dated 10-2-53; and (3) a report of the Student Course Evaluation Committee appointed by the Student Government Council and dated 1968. The first report discussed the potential uses of evaluation for the teaching faculty, the department administrator, and the student, reviewed some of the potential misuses, and concludes that the potential benefits of evaluation called for the development of a course evaluation instrument to be used throughout the University. The second report presented a history of student appraisal of the faculty of the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, appraised the old student-opinion program and its contribution to instruction, discussed the defects of student ratings, especially in administrative use, and made recommendations. The third report discussed the defects of student ratings, especially in administrative use, and made recommendations. The third report discussed and evaluated the 41-item questionnaire distributed in March 1968 in 45 courses, primarily of interest to freshmen. (AF)
