Abstract "Reevaluating the Student Evaluation Process" Scott Dunning, Rosemary Lamountain, Linda Liscomb University of MaineAt the end of each semester, students dutifully fill out student evaluation forms toevaluate the quality of the course and the course delivery and administration asperformed by the instructor. Many institutions use forms that have remainedrelatively unchanged for years. Some use a wide battery of questions to cover allpossible aspects of the course. Others use less questions but encourage or requiresupporting comments from students to justify scores. A review of availablereference data on the topic will be detailed.This paper examines the student evaluation process and discusses the strengths andweaknesses of several approaches. Data collected during the 2009-2010 academicyear comparing evaluation data from two different evaluation forms that were usedin multiple classes will be presented. Statistical analysis will be presented alongwith qualitative data comparison. Conclusions will be drawn based upon theresults.
