Instruments

There are different questionnaires for on-campus  classes, on-campus w/ lab , and for distance educationclasses. Both are composed of twelve closed-ended questions and three open-ended questions that constitute the common core of all questionnaires. An additional four questions are added for lab or DE 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 7 closed-ended questions and 6 additional open-ended questions.  Individuals may develop their own questions to address special interests, such as special classes, experimental classes, pedagogical innovations, or a particular issue.  OIRP will organize a process for soliciting these questions.  OIRP has developed a question bank to help individuals and units customize their evaluations.

Every three years, in preparation for EOTC’s evaluation of ClassEval, OIRP 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.
