Understanding Your IDEA Center Course Evaluations

Fall 2011 Workshop - Wednesday, October 5

Sessions for faculty: 9-10:30 a.m. or 2:30-4 p.m.

Session for department heads/program directors: noon-1:30 p.m.

All sessions will be held in AU326

In response to faculty requests, we're bringing back an expert from the IDEA Center to help you understand how best to use the Summary Reports of your scores and how best to fine-tune (if necessary) the Objectives on the Faculty Information Form (FIF); they'll also be able to answer questions you might have about how scores are calculated.

Two sessions for faculty (9-10:30 a.m. or 2:30-4 p.m.) and one session for department heads/program directors (noon-1:30 p.m.) will be offered. Please plan to bring your Summary Reports as references. We'll have samples for new faculty. Steve Benton, PhD, Senior Research Officer from the IDEA Center and Professor Emeritus from Kansas State University, will lead the sessions.

Information on IDEA Center course evaluations is available online at www.theideacenter.org, including "Notes on Instruction," "Interpretive Guide on IDEA Diagnostic Form Report," and "Interpreting Adjusted Ratings of Outcomes."
