Abstract:

The project expanded on an already developed process for teacher-course evaluation at the higher education level. The process uses student ratings collected with an instrument which focuses on teacher behaviors and activities, overall assessments, and student and course information. Teaching improvement materials were developed as was a computer-based mechanism which provides statistical results, generates narrative reports that interpret the statistics, and matches areas of weak performance with the specific references and resources at hand. Products developed by the project included articles, books, reports, audio-visual items, and computer software (E.G., the "Tencore" authoring system and "Ventura" desktop publishing software). The system has been implemented at Northeastern University (Massachusetts) where it has been favorably received and where it efficiently handles about 1,500 course evaluations per academic quarter using 4 full-time staff. It has also been field tested at the State University of New York (suny) at Buffalo. Seven appendixes include: system description; lists of professional meetings and expert consultants; the course evaluation questionnaire; the summary report of project implementation at suny Buffalo; and a resource bibliography of 38 citations.
