Student Evaluations of Faculty Revisited: Online versus Traditional Methods
Young, Marilyn; McCaslin, Sara
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v8 n2 p11-17 Fall 2012
Past research has focused on many aspects of faculty evaluation from types of question to appropriate application. An increasing number of academic institutions are changing to web-based systems to take advantage of certain efficiencies in the collection process. This research compares results from traditional in-class versus online methods. No significant differences in mean scores were found in the majority of cases. However, when a major paper was required in the course, researchers discovered that student evaluations were significantly more negative. This study proposes a model to show important factors in considering a change from traditional pen and paper evaluations to online evaluations and whether the online process will have a significant effect on means scores and response rates.
