Analyzing and Improving Instructional Practices.
Wharton, Keith
As part of a symposium on "A Plan for the Comprehensive Evaluation of College Teaching," this paper focuses on the third of three suggested levels of an evaluation matrix, specific feedback data aimed at pinpointing reasons for and solving problems with teaching and classroom activities. Methods of getting specific feedback data from students and colleagues and of providing assistance to improve instruction are examined. Such data are usually collected to calrify and explicate problems identified by Level 2 evaluation. Student input to Level 3 evaluation may take several forms. For instance, if lectures were reviewed negatively at Level 2, an open-ended questionnaire about the lectures could be developed and used. Alternatively, the faculty member could engage in discussions with his students concerning improvement of the lectures. The important contributions to Level 3 evaluation which colleagues and evaluation specialists can make are examined. (Author/KM)
