Walker, Scott L.
Online Submission, Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education--TOJDE v6 n4 p7-11 Oct 2005
Post-secondary classes are usually followed by mandatory summative evaluations, yet changes in teaching and course structure cannot be made with summative evaluations. Formative evaluations in online education can result in candid responses from students if a third-party facilitator is involved in the process. This paper presents a method for conducting formative evaluation in an online class by utilizing the assistance of a colleague. Results of one such evaluation are presented, as are its advantages and disadvantages. (Contains 1 table.)
