Abstract

End of course evaluations are a widely used means of assessing student learning experiences and provide opportunities for faculty to refine their teaching and course content. However, the way institutions collect and share those results varies. Using data from the 2013 National Survey of Student Engagement and Faculty Survey of Student Engagement administrations, this presentation examines how different types of institutions collect and distribute course evaluation results, how much students access course evaluation information, and how much faculty use course evaluation information to improve their courses and teaching. Student use of external evaluation sources (e.g., ratemyprofessor.com) to select courses is also be examined.
