Evaluation of Teaching Quality at Politecnico di Torino.
Gola, Muzio M.
The Politecnico di Torino Joint Committee for Teaching (CPD) has set up an observation system consisting of: a) extended course presentations, b) statistics on examinations, and c) student questionnaires. At the end of each academic year, the CPD publishes volumes containing statistics on examinations, where each course is described by a cumulative curve showing the number of students passing the exam with time (examination sessions); each course is followed for four years. The CPD has also developed a system of questionnaires on teaching quality to be distributed to the students. In these questionnaires, students provide information concerning their attendance rates, work required by the instructor, work load for the semester, classrooms, lecture hall and facilities, teaching abilities of the professor and teaching assistants, and timetables. Questionnaires and examination statistics provide the raw data or "descriptors" used to obtain a system of teaching quality "indicators," which is published yearly and made available to the academic authorities at many levels.
