We'll have one last discussion and then ...
There are two evaluation forms
One of the forms will be completed online.
You should have received an email telling you that you can fill our your Carolina Course Evaluation online. It is a set of 30 closed-ended questions. You may complete this form at your leisure, but it would also be very appropriate for you to complete it in class on the last scheduled session. The CCE results are used for promotion decisions within the School.
For SILS courses, you have three extra questions to answer online as well.
- The instructor's command of the subject matter was excellent
- My interest in the subject has increased
- The pace at which the instructor covered the material was appropriate
The second part is a SILS form with open-ended questions which will be handed out today.
Comments written on the Carolina Course Evaluation form will be shared with the instructor and those involved in evaluation of teaching at SILS. Comments on the SILS form will only be shared with the instructor.
