A Guided, Interactive User Experience Design Sprint!

Imagine that you have all of the resources in the world at your disposal to build the best, most robust custom reporting solution anyone has ever seen. Where would you start? The user experience design sprint is a guided exercise in problem-solving. In a short period of time, we will define and design a solution for development. Ideally, participants should have experience with reporting on campus in some capacity.

Advanced Applications: Aligning Student Feedback for a More Balanced Evaluation (and More)

When constructed carefully, student ratings data is a valuable source for balanced faculty evaluation systems as well as for accreditation and curriculum design. In this session we’ll cover best practices for balanced evaluations of teaching, other types of required evidence, and how to make the most of data we already have available to us.

Modifying the Delphi Method to Improve Course/Instructor Evaluations AND Reach Faculty Consensus (Oxymoron?)

The graduate faculty were struggling to make sense of the data on course and instructor student satisfaction data. They either discounted it or took it far too literally. An improvement team of faculty volunteers used a modified Delphi method to gain consensus, produce a new survey, and change the process within one year. The iterative approach offered transparency, repetitive opportunity for faculty input, and visible demonstration of changes. This workshop will showcase highlights of our approach.

Communication Automation in CoursEval– Set It and Forget It

This quick training will showcase the automated participant email function. This feature allows CoursEval managers to cut down on survey setup time by eliminating the need to set up announcements and reminders for survey participants.

Pulse of the Classroom: Feedback for Formative Assessment

This quick training session will review the Course Evaluations Feedback tool and how it helps faculty gather formative feedback from students. We will walk through the seven-question instrument and view the three reporting options available to faculty members. We will also discuss how Feedback can help faculty better understand how confident their students feel about the material at any given moment in the classroom as well as throughout the term.

When One Window Opens, Another One Closes – An Overview of Custom Windows in CoursEval

Do your course surveys deploy at different intervals during the semester? If so, this quick training is right for you. Learn what information is needed to consolidate surveys using a few features, including course dates, imported custom dates, and manually added custom dates.

Educational Session 7

10:45 - 11:45am | Cattelya

Increasing Engagement and Improving Departmental Efficiencies with Distributed Control

Preparing for course evaluations requires coordination across many departments, and on some campuses responsibilities are shared more widely than others. In this user research session, we will explore shared opportunities in the course evaluation setup, review monitoring and reporting processes, and discuss where your campus fits on the spectrum of distributed control. Participants should be ready to share their experience in course evaluations or have an inquisitive desire to learn from others on this topic.

Growing the Culture for Course and Faculty Evaluations in a City of Small Campuses

In this presentation, we will explain how we grew an enterprise-level course and faculty evaluation program that now spans multiple departments and colleges (including our medical school), each with its own requirements. We will share some of our success stories and additional learning opportunities. We will also share our plans for continuing improvement in both the evaluations as well as supporting operations.

Deeper Data Analysis with Campus Labs Response Export

The transition from paper to electronic evaluations was a step forward practically, financially, and environmentally for our program. But the Campus Labs response exports have also widened our data analysis capabilities. We can now mine student comments for analysis and more deeply explore how demographics factor into teacher evaluations. In this session, we will share some highlights of our ongoing success.
