Abstract: This paper describes the implementation of an on-line tool to support consistent student evaluation of instruction. The tool includes interfaces to support chair, faculty and student processes necessary to publish, collect, and report survey information on learning outcomes from individual courses. This work includes tracking relationships of these course outcomes to departmental and program outcomes in the support of continuous quality improvement. The paper describes the design of the web-based course-exit survey and the data collection and analysis processes supported by the tool.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Gannon University has developed a web-based course-exit survey in support of its EC2000 evaluation efforts. The department has recently completed a major effort in restructuring and refining its departmental goals and objectives, catalog, and operations in preparation for its next ABET visitation using EC2000 criteria . This effort includes consistent communication and measurement of department outcomes. A key component of this effort is the measurement of course outcomes by identified program constituents.
Among the constituents the department has identified are faculty and students. The department recognizes that there are vast amount of effort needed to collect data from these constituents, let alone getting results analyzed and available to constituents for evaluation in a reasonable time with the limited resources available. These resource constraints are one of the consistent factors in encouraging programs to utilize on-line survey systems .
Keys to success in the EC2000 process include involvement and communication, assessment and evaluation, and closing the loop with constituents . Well-designed on-line systems can play a key role in this success, as they support consistent reporting and tracking of student and faculty involvement in the assessment process, provide one means for program evaluation, and provide
