Faculty Evaluation of an Instructional Support Center.
Mayo, G. Douglas; And Others
The Memphis State University Center for Instructional Service and Research was evaluated in a survey of faculty members. Considered were the importance of each of the 19 functions performed by the center, how well each function was carried out, and what could be done to improve performance in each of the 19 areas. The evaluation project aimed to form an information base from which systematic imporvement could be made. The 19 functions are categorized as (1) instructional development and support, (2) learning media, and (3) instructional television. At a general level, the study indicates that each of the functions is viewed by the faculty as important and as being performed in a reasonably satisfactory manner, although there is room for improvement in nearly all instances. In many cases, specific action required to improve is identified. The evaluation survey itself is appended, as well as individual comments concerning improvement of performance, and responses made by faculty who had not used the services of the center during the past year.
