Abstract

The university’s course evaluations are limited and their results are not shared with students. This restricts a student’s ability to determine whether course workloads or instructors’ teaching styles fit their needs. Even basic course information such as the syllabus is typically only posted in Moodle, a password-locked environment only available to students who are already enrolled in that particular course. Having public evaluations would provide more transparency and honesty for the student body. Additionally, current course evaluation questions are tailored for the instructors benefit, typically in terms of an instructor meeting prescribed learning outcomes. These questions do not necessarily cover information that students would most like to know in terms of the student experience. Our Student Course Evaluation and Review Application creates a way to help students make informed educational decisions by collecting and organizing student opinions in a meaningful way that aids in uncovering patterns and explaining course problems.
