Arizona Course/Instructor Evaluation Questionnaire (CIEQ). Results Interpretation Manual. Form 76.
Aleamoni, Lawrence M.
The Arizona Course Instructor Evaluation Questionnaire (CIEQ) was designed to assist individual instructors in improving teaching methods and courses. Secondary uses include faculty evaluation, research, and course and instructor selection by students. Successive refinements of the original pool of 1,000 items by factor analysis and subjective expert judgment led to the current 21-item instrument with five subscales: general course attitude, method of instruction, course content, interest and attention, and instructor. Internal consistency reliability coefficients on the subscales ranged from .80 to .98. Normative data based on class means were collected from 16,000 course sections at two universities, and 6,800 sections nationwide. The data compared results of student ratings by course level (from freshman to graduate), proportion of required enrollment, and instructor rank. The first two variables yielded significant validity effects. No normative data were provided for variables having little or no relationship to student ratings--class size, sex of student and instructor, time of day, and semester. (The current CIEQ, step by step instructions for interpreting the items and subscales, and 32 normative data tables are appended). (CP)
