Prompted Feedback: A Novel Approach to Course and Instructor Evaluation.
Cohen, Eli
A procedure is described for adding to the usefulness of students' ratings of college instructor effectiveness. This procedure begins with the students responding to a rating scale; in this instance a 25-item, 5-poing scale, but other scales might be used. Then the students are asked to write brief comments on three of those items which they rated highest and lowest, and finally to write other comments on ways to improve the course. At the same time the instructor responds to the same rating scale by indicating how relevant the items are to the course and then his self evaluation on those items. The results of a use of this procedure are discussed and the advantages are presented in comparison with other techniques that have been used for student evaluation of instructors. (CTM)
