An Evaluation of the Mid-Semester Student Evaluation of Teaching at a University Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps Detachment.
Sellers, Kevin C.
A student evaluation of teaching in an Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program was designed and implemented without formal validation. This study addressed the usefulness of the previous evaluation and whether the questions were the most valuable for students and faculty, especially for the improvement of teaching. An interview instrument and protocol were developed based on an extensive literature review. Formative and summative committees were used to provide feedback during the interview development stage. Interviews were conducted with the instructors of freshman, sophomore, and senior ROTC courses and two cadets from each of the four academic levels, freshman through senior. Interviews identified important areas of concern about the Air Force ROTC teaching and courses. Findings suggest that the previous evaluation instrument contained two questions unrelated to stakeholder concern and lacked questions related to six areas of concern. It was not considered to be an effective method of evaluating teaching and course concerns. Thirteen appendixes contain supplemental information, the interview protocol, and interview findings.
