FROM THE OFFICE OF INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS AND ASSESSMENT
NEWSLETTER: Week of March 19, 2012 MARCH 19 SPRING 2012 SIR II REMINDERS TO STUDENTS Continue reminding students that (1) the online course evaluation will arrive as an invitation from the Educational Testing Service ONLY via their DU email and (2) they should complete the evaluations as soon as they become available. Failure to do so could possibly result in low response rates for your course(s).
MARCH 20 WEBINAR: Increasing Course Evaluation Engagement: New Patterns in Response Rates Visit the following link to register (http://info.connectedu.com/course-evaluation-engagement) for the 10:00am webinar and find strategies to ensure maximum response rates for your online course evaluations.
MARCH 26 SPRING 2012 SIR II WINDOW OPENS: Review the attachment to confirm that your course is scheduled to be evaluated. ALL adjunct courses will be evaluated. Review the dates and locations your courses are scheduled to go to a lab. Everyone should not expect a lab, because there was not enough space. · Volunteer to facilitate one another’s course evaluations. A professor’s presence will minimize any opportunities for students to influence one another.
MARCH 29 EVALUATION OF COURSES IN LABS BEGINS: Review the attachment to see if and when your courses are scheduled to go to the lab. Arrive at the allotted time. Otherwise, it could negatively affect the timing of classes that will follow.
