When I was an instructor at Washington University in St. Louis, I ran across what I thought was a neat-o idea from the standpoint of the students (and the faculty -- at least indirectly). Each semester hundreds of booklets appeared all over campus. These little books contained the student-evaluations and selected comments for the previous semester courses.
Because I would have appreciated this sort of thing when I was a student, I decided to make something like it available to students for the classes that I teach here at RMU.
Two things differ between what I am providing to you and what I remember seeing at Washington University. First, the forms currently used by RMU are not student-comment-friendly (so I have put together my own "comments" form that I use every-so-often). Second, in order to give the evaluation scores some perspective, I have included information about the final grade-distribution for all of the classes.
When examining the average scores, keep in mind that course evaluations are sometimes not very accurate for at least three reasons:
My evaluations probably reflect all of these (and probably other factors as well) to some degree or another... Generally, though, the larger the number of people evaluating the course, the more likely these things tend to average out in the end.
