A Method for Generating and Evaluating Course or Departmental Objectives.
Pascal, C. E.; Roid, G. H.
In order to move away from reliance on a single questionnaire in university course evaluation and move towards a more formative evaluation, a method was developed for helping a team of instructors specify and evaluate their course and program goals. The method involves small group workshops in which instructors are asked to describe their program and state their objectives, in terms of student behavior. Discrimination training on clarity of objectives is provided. Written statements are then circulated to all instructors to test consensus. An application of the method to 30 instructors in a medical school department is discussed. (Author)
