Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself

Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

Course evaluations are often viewed as a chore; one of those unpleasant obligations we do at the end of each course. In the Teaching Professor Blog post "End-of-Course Evaluations: Making Sense of Student Comments," Maryellen Weimer is bang-on in stating that the comments students dash off can be more confusing than clarifying.

Evaluations as formative evaluation will structure feedback and give your students a voice.  Sometimes you're able to make course corrections during the class. Other times, you revise materials for the next semester.

This is a great tool. I could see many uses in business.  It is interactive,  so will keep learners motivated.  On the SAMR model it will fall in the category of Augmentation, useful for show and tell and then confirmation of learning (behaviourism).

I found that reviewing a new CMS helped me define exactly what I need in a course management system.  Eudstruct isn't there yet, but they are very open to critical comments that will help them improve the product.  


If you've never done a beta test, be prepared to react to an environment in a 'growth phase'.  I suggest you approach this test with an open mind. Create a list of features you want.  Explore the Course and Discussion elements.  Let Mark know what it would take to temp you into investing the time and effort needed to create and teach online classes using this CMS.   My guess?  Everyone will learn something by going through the process

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

Most of the specific questions were on quizzes. This is because in my AP and gen. physics classes I give all quizzes on Canvas. I have quiz banks set up, from which Canvas pulls random problems, and the students do their best to answer them. Most of these questions came after I said that I gave the students multiple attempts on the quizzes (up to 5, at their own pace in AP, and as many as needed by conference in gen. physics).

One question went something like this, “Well, how do they take the quizzes? In class or at home?” I could tell right away that the concept of multiple attempts was throwing the teacher.

I'm no fan of high stakes quizzes/tests.  Instead I prefer the method advocated in this blog piece:  unlimited attempts.  


For me a quiz is a highly motivating opportunity for some guided review.  In an online environment where test security is always an issue, unlimited attempts removes the pressure.
