There are different questionnaires for on-campus classes, on-campus w/ lab , and for distance education classes. Both are composed of twelve closed-ended questions and three open-ended questions that constitute the common core of all questionnaires. An additional four close-ended question and one open-ended question are added for lab or distance education courses. The Evaluation of Teaching Committee (EOTC) is responsible for selecting and amending these core questions.
Individual instructors, departments, and colleges may add up to seven closed-ended questions and six additional open-ended questions to the common core set of questions. Individuals may develop their own questions to address special interests, such as special classes, experimental classes, pedagogical innovations, or a particular issue. ISA will organize a process for soliciting these questions. ISA has developed a question bank to help individuals and units customize their evaluations.
Every three years, in preparation for EOTC’s evaluation of ClassEval, ISA will work with a team of faculty with psychometric and other expertise to test the validity and reliability of the core questions. EOTC will settle issues related to the content of the questionnaire.
