The Course Evaluation Project Team (CEPT) was established in May 2014 to explore the potential for a new course evaluation model that meets the needs of students, faculty, staff and administrators.
The project team has produced a draft report that presents a course evaluation instrument that is guided by key principles, a cascaded model of questions, and an information management strategy.
The draft report was released to the campus community in November 2016, asking for responses to the following questions:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of Waterloo adopting a cascaded model for course evaluation?
- How well do the sample questions align with the instrument design principles outlined in this report?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of access to course evaluation information as presented in this report?
- What other comments do you have about the recommendations and information presented regarding course evaluations at Waterloo?
We have received over 90 responses and numerous commentaries from the following:
- Federation of Students (FEDS)
- Graduate Student Association (GSA)
- Faculty Association of the University of Waterloo (FAUW)
- Status of Women and Equity Committee (SWEC)
- Faculty of Mathematics
- Members of Psychology Department
- English Language and Literature Department
- Feke, J.; McLevey, J.; Milligan, I.; Singh R. and Wilkins-Laflamme, S.
