Innovation in Faculty-Course Evaluation and Feedback.
Whetstone, Robert D.
This is a report of the development of a Faculty-Course Questionnaire (FCQ) evaluation instrument at the University of Colorado. The evaluation process is computer based and is similar in several ways to that used for processing and reporting the results of the Strong Vocational Interest Blank at the University of Colorado. A computerized feedback system was developed which allowed for considerable flexibility. In addition to the availability of practically an unlimited number of optional questions that are individually preprinted by computer, the chief advantage of this procedure is that each instructor of a course receives detailed and comprehensive information that is individually specific and at the same time allows comparisons with various norm groups within the university. The instructor also receives subjective responses by students on the backside of the questionnaire which asks for the most and least effective aspects of the course and utilizes the critical incidence technique. There is a two page feedback system which gives one page of numerical and normative feedback while the second page is designed to give a verbal report (page 2 is still under development). This is another example of how the use of the computer has opened the door to a new dimension in innovation in evaluation. (Author)
