A Five-Year Review of Student Class Evaluations at Salt Lake Community College.
Cooney, Frank
This report reviews the past five years of student class evaluations at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC). Included in the review are the Instructional Assessment System (IAS) student class evaluations, the results from the new, non-returning and graduating student surveys, and observations on the student comments in those surveys. The average IAS student class evaluation score for the entire college has remained consistently high during the past five years. Students rate their satisfaction with instructors even higher than the classes as a whole. In the fall semester 1998, 94 percent of all classes were rated as "good" or better and 6 percent were rated as less than "good." Twenty-three percent received an outstanding rating of 4.50 and better on the 5-point scale. The student survey responses support the very positive IAS results. The open-ended student comments in the mail surveys differ from the student comments in the IAS class ratings. The survey comments are made by only a few respondents and tend to be negative. The IAS comments are more numerous and reflect the very good class ratings. The SLCC results are similar to comparable results in the state of Utah, undergraduate IAS results at the University of Washington, and at two other community colleges. (VWC)
