Instructional Evaluation Techniques: Ends Dictate the Means.
Shrock, Sharon A.; And Others
This paper discusses two separate studies undertaken in the same academic department to ascertain consistency in student evaluation ratings. Each study used Frey's Endeavor Instrument, a 7-item form that is specifically designed to solicit student input for administrative decision making, and the Southern Illinois University Instructor & Course Evaluation Form (ICE), an instructional evaluation form with 40 items clustered under four subscales: personal-interpersonal, course structure, course quality, and course difficulty. Conducted during the spring semester of 1980, the first study included 13 classes representing 11 different faculty members. The second study took place in the fall of 1980 and included 17 classes representing 11 different instructors. The results indicated that evaluations differed depending upon the instrument used. Copies of four additional instruments that were chosen to demonstrate the variety of observation recording devices available are also provided: (1) the Lecture Checklist and Student Response Record, (2) the Tuckman Teacher Feedback Form, (3) the Majer-Flanigan Classroom Presentation Checklist, and (4) the Berquist and Phillips Forms. Three references are listed. (CHC)
