The Description of a Faculty and Course Evaluation Scheme. Learning and Development, Volume 9, Number 1.
A system was developed for program evaluation throughout the university. It provides the user with guidelines, procedures, materials, and resources to conduct evaluations for the improvement of teaching skills and methods, course development, and administrative decisionmaking about curricular matters. The evaluation process is intended to be flexible enough for application to a variety of disciplines, and consists of four components: (1) a workshop for users; (2) an evaluation scheme handbook; (3) resource files of existing materials relating to each stage in the evaluation process, so that prescriptiveness can be avoided; and (4) evaluation specialists and consultants available for guidance. The process is outlined in steps that culminate in action toward improvement. (MSE)
