Interpreting and Making Sense of Course Evaluations

Posted by on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 in News.

As the semester draws to a close, our students are given the opportunity to provide us with a potentially valuable source of feedback on our teaching and its effects on their learning.  You may find it challenging, however, to interpret what your end-of-semester course evaluations mean and decide how to act on them.

The CFT can help.  A CFT consultant will be glad to meet with you in a one-on-one, confidential consultation to assist you with interpretation and response.  Questions considered include:

  • How do the evaluations indicate what we did well, and what we can change to improve student learning?
  • What best practices may help us revise and refine our courses?
  • What is the best way to reflect on our evaluations as we ready ourselves for professional review?

To make an appointment, use our contact form or call (615) 322-7290.  And for more information see our online Teaching Guide on Student Evaluations.
