Formulating Instrumentation for Student Assessment of Systematic Instruction.
Nelson, Dennis E.
A review of the literature indicates the recent popularity of student evaluation of faculty in (1) providing feedback to faculty so that they can modify or improve their instruction; (2) acquiring information to be used in evaluating faculty, and in making tenure and promotion decisions; (3) acquiring information to be disseminated to students so that they can make course and curriculum choices. In spite of the high number of evaluation instruments produced in recent years, few have specifically been geared to the theoretical model of instruction being applied in the course to be evaluated. In order to alleviate this problem, a new student evaluation instrument--The Student Assessment of Systematic Instruction (SASI)is being developed at College of the Mainland. The proposed instrument divides the evaluation into six categories: the organization and structure of learning, the quality of learning materials, students' perception of the value of course content, students' perception of their own personal growth, quality of teaching, and quality of student-teacher interaction. Students are asked to rate the section in which they are enrolled in relation to other sections in the same course, department, division, and college; and to explain what reasons they have for their rating. Results will be reported by computer, and a sample computer printout is appended. (Author/NHM)
